Local charity helps honor Noah and Nate

An East Tennessee community paid tribute Wednesday to two boys who died in a marina electrical incident in 2012.

The band "Sidewalk Prophets" performed as part of the Helen Ross McNabb Center's Evening of Hope at the Great Smoky Mountain Expo Center in White Pine.

At the start of the night, the band paid tribute to Noah Dean Winstead and Nate Lynam, two little boys who died while swimming in a marina back in 2012.

The band has helped the boys' families get through some hard times.

"One of the songs that they've really clung to in this difficult time is one of the Sidewalk Prophets' songs, which is 'Live Like That'. So again it's just a wonderful message for the community. So we're gonna honor Noah and Nate with that song," said Emily Scheuneman with the Helen Ross McNabb Center.

Earlier this year, the Tennessee Senate unanimously passed the 'Noah Dean and Nate Bill', which implements extra safety precautions at marina docks.
