DotFest will raise funds for National Stroke Association


This weekend in Wheeling, local country artist Matt VanFossen is holding the 7th annual DotFest concert in honor of his mother Dorothy.

VanFossen will be performing songs off his new album ‘Wheeling, West Virginia 1984.’

The event will feature music, raffles and more. A portion of the proceeds go to the National Stroke Association in honor of his mother Dorothy Shepard.

“My mom passed away on St. Patrick's day 2010 of a stroke at age 50, so every year since 2011 we have DotFest in her memory,” VanFossen said. “We all make mistakes, I've made mistakes. This album is all about life mistakes, that you were wrong, you didn't know it all and being able to put that out there to the world."

DotFest takes place on the third floor of River City Ale Works in Wheeling Saturday night.

Doors open at 6 p.m. VanFossen will perform from 8 p.m. to midnight.
