Thousands attended the two-day "Curing Cancer Music Fest" in Ballinger.

The annual event began Friday evening, and continued with over a dozen bands performing throughout the weekend.

Event Organizer, Elizabeth Cook, says she feels motivated to continue this even each year because like many in the community, her family members have endured the fight against cancer.

All proceeds go to the American Cancer Association.
