Moonshine Festival Foldout Front Page
Be sure to pick up a copy of today's Dawson County News for a special pullout section on the 48th annual Mountain Moonshine Festival, plus expanded previews, schedules and more.
Hundreds of local children will wake up Christmas morning to find presents under their trees thanks to dozens of volunteers determined to make holiday wishes come true. K.A.R.E. for Kids, the Dawsonville-based non-profit organization that strives to serve the community's less fortunate families, provided Christmas presents to more than 700 local children in 2014. Funded by profits from the annual Mountain Moonshine Festival, the group of volunteers purchases items such as winter coats, shoes, clothing, medicine, toys for Christmas and provides year-round assistance to families in need.
