Peach State Quartet to Sing for FSH Muscular Dystrophy Research
Date:8/5/2013

(PRWEB) August 05, 2013

Please join the Peach State Quartet at Sharon Baptist Church, McDonough, Georgia on Saturday, September 7 at 5:00 p.m. for music and dinner to benefit the FSH Society, a world leader in combating muscular dystrophy. The Peach State Quartet, a male southern gospel group that has been singing together since 1972, will perform, followed by a Hawaiian-themed dinner.

The ensemble was named one of the top 5 male quartets for 2012 by the Southeastern Southern Gospel Music Conference. Their single released to national radio, "Right on Time God," hit the Christian Voice Top 100 Chart in the first month it was released, and has climbed the chart every month since then. “We’re a group of guys that love to have fun while we are communicating the gospel of Jesus Christ through song,” says the group’s leader, baritone Doug Stroup.

Opening for the Peach State Quartet will be the locally celebrated Fulmer Sisters, Nashville singer-songwriter Phil Bennett, and Virginia Wyckoff, the newly crowned National American Miss Georgia Teen 2013. Bennett was himself diagnosed with FSH muscular dystrophy, as was Wyckoff’s sister Carden.

Tickets are on sale now and proceeds from the event will go to the FSH Society to fund research on Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD), a type of muscular dystrophy. The disease causes a progressive loss, wasting and atrophy of all skeletal muscles, usually starting with the locations reflected in the name of the disease: face, shoulder girdle and upper arms. The non-profit FSH Society has provided millions of dollars in seed grants to pioneering research worldwide, and has created an international collaborative network of patients and researchers.

The benefit event was organized by Rod Fulmer, a McDonough resident whose family has been hit hard by FSHD.
