Concert will honor late Walhalla councilwoman, Red Cross leader

Posted: Updated:

A Walhalla city councilwoman who served Oconee County as director of the American Red Cross' Oconee Chapter for 20 years will be honored during a special concert a day after losing her battle with cancer, according to WGOG radio host Wayne Morton.

Morton told FOX Carolina that Kathy Rogers, 58, died Friday evening at the Cottingham Hospice House in Seneca.

Rogers was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year, Morton said.

Morton said he, along with local musicians and friends of Rogers, had organized the Kathy Rogers Appreciation Concert, which Morton said will still take place Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Walhalla High School Auditorium.

Morton said the concert will celebrate Roger's life and service to the city.

Several musical performers, American Red Cross officials, local officials and county emergency personnel will participate in the appreciation concert.

Admission is free but donations for the family will be accepted.
