Fundraiser to help family who lost their mother
Tuesday, April 2, 2013

A local fundraiser, a Kristina’s Girls Fund Concert, is planned for Saturday April 6, from 5 to 8 p.m. 

A group of students from The Heritage Christian Academy, a co-op and tutorial group supporting home schooling families, will host a performance by the group’s Zach Allen Band that evening and sell food and drinks. 

Other entertainment includes singer/songwriter Matt Belsante, and the bands Half Built and Richard Gowen. 

The event will be held at The Place, 11966 Lebanon Rd., Mt. Juliet, and proceeds will also benefit the Adkins’ children’s education.

Kristina Adkins, 35, died after complications from childbirth March 7. A memorial service was held at First Baptist Church in Mt. Juliet, March 17. 

Her husband, Jeremy, now has to care for their five children, Mackenzie, 14, Alexis, 11, Savannah, 9, Sophia, 7 and newborn Kristina. 

Adkins grew up in Wilson County, but was transferred to Coral Springs, Fla. through his job with HCA.
