Concert held to help Johnston family

Musician and teacher Alfredo Aguiar-Marquez watched as one of his students, Dillon Johnston, played his guitar, accompanying Alfredo as he sang "Knocking on Heaven's Door", at a fundraisng concert for Dillon's family on Saturday evening at McKenna Hall. Entitled "That's What Friends Are For", the concert featured Alfredo and several students, along with the band "Switch", as they performed and helped to raise money to help out the Johnston family. After he played here, Dillon thanked the audience for supporting them, and thanked his mom, Danielle, for buying the guitar he's playing, as his guitars were destroyed in the tragic house fire that took the Johnston's family home near Griffin earlier this year.
