HUNTERSVILLE – Organizers promised an expanded Barnstock music festival this year, and in the end they came through. This weekend’s two-day showcase of local music at the Brown family barn off Black Farms Road in Huntersville attracted nearly 1,200 fans and raised $10,000 for local charities.
This festival, which included a headline performance Friday by nationally-known rockers Donna the Buffalo, raised money for Davidson’s volunteer fire department, Second Harvest Food Bank, American Red Cross, Cannon School in Concord and W.A. Hough High School in Cornelius. The charities will share the $10,000 equally. Read the full story

For a while Monday morning it seemed like Stephen and Dell Curry and dozens of other golfers might never get around to teeing off at the Curry Celebrity Classic at River Run Country Club. There were photos to be taken, hands to be shaken and old friends to visit with. But then, after a mass photo with all the sports celebrities and other golfers, the 30 or so foursomes loaded into carts and headed onto the course.
It was the third year for the Curry Celebrity Classic, which Davidson basketball star turned NBA standout Stephen Curry organizes with his retired NBA star dad. While it was a chance to play some golf on a beautiful late-spring day, it also was a fund-raiser, bringing in a net $65,000 for the Ada Jenkins Center in Davidson. Read the full story
