Two Hopes Collide: Mallary Hope to present benefit concert for cancer society
From The Daily Citizen
Hometown girl Mallary Hope will return to Dalton to support the American Cancer Society with a benefit concert at the Wink Theatre on Nov. 10.
Hope grew up in Cohutta and attended Northwest Whitfield High School until her junior year when the family decided to move to Nashville to pursue her singing career. She signed with MCA Records and recently released a single and video, “Love Lives On.” Her music and the video are available on her Web site, www.mallaryhope.com.
Hope was featured in the Sept. 14 edition of Country Weekly magazine, has opened for Blake Shelton, and sang for the troops at Fort Lewis. She will also be singing the national anthem on Oct. 17 as the University of Georgia football team faces Vanderbilt in Nashville.
Hope will soon release her album of 11 songs, 10 of which she wrote. She is expected to make her debut appearance on the Grand Ole Opry stage on Oct. 24. Information and show times are posted on the Opry’s Web site (www.opry.com/TicketsAndInformation/Calendar.aspx). Also expected to appear that night are Trace Adkins, the Oak Ridge Boys and Montgomery Gentry.
The benefit concert will be held at the Historic Wink Theatre in downtown Dalton on Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. Doors will open beginning at 5:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be available for purchase in the café. Ticket prices are $10 cash for general admission and $25 cash for a limited number of tickets that include reserved seating along with a chance to meet Hope and get an autograph following the show.
Tickets can be purchased in person for cash only at the American Cancer Society office in downtown Dalton at 300 W.

Cancer affects us all in some way, whether it is personal, a family member, loved one or a close friend. Cancer is a disease that does not discriminate against age, race, origin or religion. It is not just a medical issue, it can transform into a psychological, emotional and even economic issue as well.
Every dollar donated to the American Cancer Society is essential to supporting its mission of fighting cancer on these four fronts: research, education, advocacy and service.
