This is the second annual event to celebrate local am DJ Sharon Green’s son Andrew. The community has been following Green, a DJ for Kiss Country 99.9, since her pregnancy with Andrew.

To honor Tye, the Tye Blanton Foundation supplies items for premature and sick infants of the NICU to give a sense of personality and comfort to these infants and help parents make the NICU a home away from home, according to the foundation’s website.
The event will be hosted at Asheville’s Fun Depot. With each $10 donation to the Tye Blanton Foundation, guests will receive $10 worth of play and free play in the Kid’s Adventure Express and Tot’s Turtle Lagoon at the family fun center.
