ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - The annual Christmas Jam held by Warren Haynes has written its biggest check yet to Habitat for Humanity.

The Asheville Citizen-Times (https://avlne.ws/1ss6Ie4 ) reports that the organization behind the concert, which was held Saturday night, donated $500,000 to Habitat. Over the years, the jam has raised a total of $1.8 million for Asheville-area Habitat.

The 26th Annual Christmas Jam featured Jason Isbell and Haynes’ band Gov’t Mule among other acts at the U.S. Cellular Center in downtown Asheville.

The jam began at a smaller nightclub and used to write checks to a variety of charities, but began a consistent partnership with Habitat in 1998.
