DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - Organizers of the Toadlick Music Festival in southeast Alabama say they want to find more charitable partners in order to broaden the event’s community outreach.

The Dothan Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1kVoRNg) that the 2015 Toadlick Music Festival will be held April 23-25 at the National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds.

Festival spokeswoman Debbie Ingram Ward said organizers are taking responses to a recent survey to heart. Ward said many people of the roughly 250 people who responded to the survey said they wanted more old-time country, traditional country and classic rock acts.

The festival has helped raise funds and goods for local charities in recent years, providing about $10,000 in food and cash to the Wiregrass Food Bank.

This year, Ward said the event is accepting applications for assistance from local charitable organizations.
