But, perhaps the most exciting thing, the thing that keeps Ater’s spirits buoyed, is that Watson helped get some major names to promise to come to the event. These musicians can’t be named because of contractual obligations, but they will at least make an appearance during the fundraiser, Ater said.
The Texas Red Dirt Road Show will also be broadcasting live from the event from 4 to 7 p.m. And, Ater said, she’s hoping to get some raffle items together as well.
There will be no cover charge, but mothers from the group will be at the restaurant to take donations to help raise funds to put the statue in Clark Gardens.
If by chance the group raises more than $10,000, all the money goes back into the group coffers to help pay for retreats and materials to help grieving mothers, Ater said.
Ater continues to see her mission from God as being such — a vessel who allows others grief to fill her and she carries the burden for them, guiding them through their grief.
