"Keeping Hope Alive"

"Keeping Hope Alive" is the theme for Saturday's rally in Holly Bobo's home town of Parsons, Tennessee. The 20-year old nursing student was kidnapped from her home on Swan Johnson Road around 7:40 a.m. on April 13, 2011.

In the two years since that morning, Holly' family and friends have tirelessly searched for the young woman.  The family's hope for Holly's safe return has been strengthened by the outpouring of support and prayers from the community as well as from across the United States and the world.  All of the proceeds from the event will fund the continued the efforts to find Holly.
