The Christopher Conner Foundation was founded in honor of the Late Chris Conner, a well-loved and highly-respected musician from Columbia, SC. As the frontman for the Sourwood Honey Band, the Conner Brothers Band and The South Band, 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 at the height of his career. He fought a courageous 10-month battle with the deadly disease that set an example of courage, faith and love. He passed away November 21, 2007 leaving a legacy of friendship, love and devotion for others. The local music community and friends nationwide rallied to support Chris and his family, and the Christopher Conner Foundation was established in order to carry on Chris' work and dreams 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. The Foundation also partners with other organizations to provide healing through music and music related fund raisers for those in need.
The Conner Foundation would like to thank all you who have supported our mission. Special thanks to Jackie Townsend, Hugh Brannon, The Henry L. Willett Foundation, Sysco, SC Collaborative and all of you who have gone above and beyond. Thank you and God Bless!
