The Christopher Conner Foundation was founded in honor of the late Chris Conner, a well-loved and respected musician from Columbia, South Carolina. As the frontman for the Sourwood Honey Band, the Conner Brothers Band and The South, Chris was an accomplished musician and songwriter whose music earned him a diverse and loyal fan base. Chris was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer at age 36 and passed away after a 10-month battle with the disease on November 21, 2007. Chris' courageous battle with lung cancer rallied the local music community and friends nationwide to support him and his family. He set an example of courage, faith and love that inspired his family and friends to establish The Christopher Conner Foundation in order to continue his dream of helping others.
The Christopher Conner Foundation is a grassroots fundraising organization that supports our local community musicians and their families with medical and educational fund assistance, as well as partners with other organizations to provide healing through music. The foundation's objective is to host annual events to showcase local talent and to assist, promote and sponsor "up and coming" performing artists.
