Elswick fundraiser rescheduled for March 2

February 18, 2003

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A country music show designed to raise money for West Virginia State Police Trooper Robert "R.J." Elswick's medical expenses has been postponed until March 2, an organizer said.

The event, which had been scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Rainbow Road Club near Rippon, had to be postponed because of Sunday's snowstorm, said Rick Hahn.

Elswick returned home to Berkeley County on Friday after surviving a gunshot wound to the head while responding to a domestic call on Harper Lane near Hedgesville on Oct. 10.

For a $5 admission, supporters will be able to hear several country music acts.

Raffles and an auction also will be held to raise money, Hahn said.

The Rainbow Road Club, near the Virginia state line, has a distinct country music history. Country music legend Patsy Cline performed at the bar and part of "Sweet Dreams," a movie about Cline's life, was filmed there.
