Rising country-rock star Craig Morrison from Nashville, Tenn., will perform a concert from 4 to 6 p.m. Aug. 31 at Wild Waves Theme Park in Federal Way.
The concert is presented by local charity FUSION (Friends United to Shelter the Indigent, Oppressed and Needy). Celebrating its 20th anniversary, FUSION provides 17 furnished transitional housing units for homeless families in the area in an effort to help them become self-sufficient.
