Serving Denton, NC & Surrounding Communities


Benefit Concerts…Much More than Music
By Kelly Bledsoe
Music has been one of the most powerful ways causes, celebrities, and communities can connect to raise money for serious issues. Just take at look at Larry Furr presents Southern Theater and Event Center and the plethora of organizations and individuals who have benefitted in the short period of time the concert hall has been in operation. Just this past month Furr raised $1,700 for The Town of Denton Parks & Recreation by hosting the First Denton’s Got Talent as well as $3,500 for Father’s Storehouse in Thomasville. Furr, a music advocate, understands the draw of concerts and is using the allure of music to build Larry Furr present Southern Theater and Event Center into a powerhouse of philanthropy.

For years, benefit concerts have served as one of the most popular, easily recognizable forms of aid for various organizations and we are extremely fortunate to have such a high quality venue right here in Denton to assist our community with these charitable needs.

“Music is a universal pleasure that cuts across cultures and backgrounds,” says Furr. “Music is a unifying experience—it’s a natural choice for organizations to turn to benefit concerts as a means to raise funds and I am beyond glad to be able to provide such a service to Denton and the surrounding communities, it is why I built Southern Theater and Event Center in the first place.”

So if you haven’t been out to Larry Furr presents Southern Theater and Event Center located at 18639 Hwy. 109 South, Denton, NC take the opportunity this month to catch one of the shows.
