Do Good Fest gets underway Saturday

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) In 2019, the American Cancer Society estimates there will be about 1.8 million new diagnoses of cancer in the United States. The disease takes a physical, emotional, and financial toll.

Helping families with that financial element is the Do Good Fest in Montpelier. The concert series has raised nearly $135,000 for Branches of Hope, which helps cancer patients with expenses -- anything from groceries to gas money.

Cat Viglienzoni spoke with Ross Sneyd with the National Life Group, which is putting the show on Saturday.
