The Dustin J. Wells Foundation honors the memory of a very special young
man. After the loss of Dustin Jack Wells in a car accident in 2005, his
family and friends searched for ways to keep his memory alive and allow
his life to continue touching others. A fund was set up and the dollars
collected are used for the sole purpose of reaching out to others in
Dustin’s honor. Dustin J. Wells is the son of prominent Nashville
cosmetic dentist, Dr. Dennis Wells of the Nashville Center for Aesthetic
Dentistry. For more information on Dr. Wells or his practice visit www.drdenniswells.com.
Since its inception in 2008, the benefit concert has had the support of
some of music’s greatest artists, including Ronnie Dunn, Kellie Pickler,
Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum, Peter Cetera, Peter Frampton, Ronnie
Milsap, Gunnar Nelson, and many other generous and talented musicians
who have donated their time and talent to support the efforts and causes
of Dustin’s foundation.
A portion of the proceeds from this year’s Gift of Music concert will go to Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation.
Established as a national identity in 2014, this charitable
organization is dedicated to changing the future of cancer by funding
advanced, innovative research that treats the cancer while sparing the
patient. For more information, go to www.scottcares.org.
Because of his strong love for music, donating to the W.O. Smith Music
School is another way Dustin can be remembered, by sharing the “Gift of
Music” with underprivileged children in our community. With the
provision of free instruments and 50 cent lessons, these young lives can
continue to be changed, grown and enriched in memory of Dustin.
