The Hoppers Benefit Concert

A world renowned gospel group made a stop in Lufkin Saturday, and it was all to save lives.

"The Hoppers" put on a benefit concert at Lufkin Middle School. All proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society, a cause that hits close to home with one of the group's members.

Connie Hopper is a cancer survivor and she says giving back to the American Cancer Society is nothing compared to what they gave to her.

Connie said, "they were there to answer any questions, they were there to help me in any way that they could and that meant a lot, meant a lot to me."

"The Hoppers" are celebrating their 48th year as a group.
