"Drop Dead Diva" producer Robert J. Wilson is among the organizers of the Georgia event, which will feature music from Collective Soul.

Sarah Jones is going to be honored by one of her former bosses.

Drop Dead Diva executive producer Robert J. Wilson, on whose show Jones worked, is helping organize a Georgia concert featuring music from Collective Soul and Shane Dwight, Access Atlanta reports. A portion of the proceeds from the concert will benefit the Sarah Jones Scholarship Fund and several other local charities.

The concert is set to take place May 31 at  Southern Ground Amphitheater in Fayetteville, Ga., and tickets can be purchased here.

Jones was working as a camera assistant on the Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider when she was struck and killed by a train Feb. 20. Production on the film has halted, and star William Hurt dropped out Wednesday. In a letter made public Friday, Allman urged director Randall Miller not to resume production.

Local and national authorities continue to investigate Jones' death.
