On June 24th 2017, the VPR spotlight was shining brightly on VPR agent Shannon Stephens who for many years has spear headed the annual Mitch Farmer June Jam charity concert event in Gainesville GA. This year marked the 10th year anniversary of this event. Those who bought tickets and were sponsors helped raise money for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) an organization to help children in need. CASA supports court-appointed volunteers to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the legal system. June Jam is a real passion for Shannon who works countless hours finding bands to perform, businesses to participate, good food to eat and volunteers to assist in making the annual benefit event a success. This charity event was started by the late Mitch Farmer in 2007, a long time Realtor friend of Shannon’s, and continues on because of Shannon’s desire to give back and to carry out Mitch’s vision to help children in need.
