For the past 13 years, the Lafayette Lioness Lions Club has provided Macon County with side-splitting comedy, exciting entertainment and good, clean fun at its Variety Show fundraiser event.
And this year, with a roster full of familiar names and local talent, fans of the show are in for yet another night to remember.
Scheduled for Saturday, March 14th, at 6 p.m., the 13th Annual Variety Show will be held in the Macon County Junior High School Auditorium, with host Kim Evans of WEEN Radio, emceeing the evening’s entertainment.

Performers in the show will include Stacy Brawner & Tim Rush, performing music from the 1950’s and 60’s, Keith Ballou, Paul Ballou, Benton Dyer & Jeff Hudson, who will be opening the show, Katie Ballou, Dale Meador, Chris Phillips & Charles Cook, of The Darlins, Heather Gann, Debbie Holland, Jennifer Brawner & Dawn Towns of The Girls of Company C, Clarissa Brawner & Dawn Towns of The Dudds, Chris Farley, Karen Burrow and Lioness Carolyn Mandrell, who will each be performing a solo and many, many others.
Admission to the event is $6 and tickets can be purchased when doors open at 5 p.m. or in advance at the Citizens Bank Scottsville Rd. Branch.
All proceeds from the show will go directly towards the Lioness Lions Club’s service to the vision and hearing impaired, and the amount will be counted in the Mrs. Hillbilly fundraiser total during Hillbilly Days.
“We really look forward to this event every year,” said Lafayette Lioness Lions Club member Gwen Linville. “There’s singing, dancing, comedy acts and good food. Everyone who comes out to join us is guaranteed to have a good time!”
A refreshment stand, featuring homemade baked goods, will be open during the show. For more information contact Gwen Linville at 666-2000.
