A tradition of altruism has endured for generations in Dawson County, all the way through this past weekend’s 54th annual Mountain Moonshine Festival. Thanks to the event, sponsoring non profit K.A.R.E For Kids will be able to help at least 700 children celebrate Christmas and receive needed winter wear and school supplies. Thousands of people from northeastern Georgia and beyond attended the festival, many donating to K.A.R.E. or supporting small businesses by purchasing from booth vendors.
