Buncombe County Veterans Treatment Court (VTC)
Buncombe County VTC is is a voluntary, court supervised, intensive treatment court for U.S. Military Veterans charged with nonviolent offenses who are struggling with addiction, mental illness and/or co-occurring disorders (PTSD/TBI).
June 9, 2018 Alex Watson performed a solo piano benefit concert at St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Asheville. The concert raised $150 for VTC and those in attendance had an opportunity to learn more about the program and ways to get involved, such as becoming a U.S. Armed Forces Veteran Mentor.
Kevi Bears Kids
Asheville's independent restaurant owners Kevin and Betty Lee of Happy Jack's are the founders of Kevi Bears Kids, a nonprofit organization that donates soccer balls and dolls to children in need around the world.
In Black Mountain June 23, 2018, Watson performed, A Sacred Reflection, a solo piano concert featuring sacred works by American composers. Mr. Watson's solo piano album, A Sacred Reflection, was released to compliment the program.
