Alan Jackson To Perform Benefit Concert In Mineral, VA
April 4, 2012 at 6:39 AM (PT)
EMI NASHVILLE artist ALAN JACKSON is set to perform a special concert in MINERAL, VA on SUNDAY MAY 20th in the LOUISA COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL parking lot. The town of MINERAL rallied together to win a concert from ALAN from an online campaign hosted by EVENTFUL.
This show is hoped to be a benefit of sorts, after MINERAL served as the origin of the AUGUST 2011 earthquake that hit the east coast and suffered severe damage. ALAN has waived his fee, but MAYOR PAM HAWLOWE says that the county still needs to raise at least $200,000 for other expenses. They are currently asking companies and business around the community to help sponsor the event.
Any profits made from the show will go straight to rebuilding the town and other projects to help repair the damage around the county. As the concert is on school grounds no alcohol will be allowed. Ticket and scheduling information will be released at a later date.
Prior to the concert, THE ALAN JACKSON CHARITY GOLF CLASSIC is scheduled for SATURDAY MAY 19th at THE ROYAL VIRGINIAN GOLF COUSE.
