A very special music concert featuring up and coming country artist Brandon Lorenzo as an opener to George Canyon will be taking place in the Taber Parallel Church parking lot on October 6 at 6 p.m.
Ken Holst, President of Spider Entertainment Group which is running the concert in conjunction with Taber Parallel Church, says that tickets are $55 each and that children 10 and under are free, but still require a ticket and people need to also bring their own chairs to the event.
Tickets, Holst says, are available at www.spiderentertainment. ca and proceeds from the event, which includes a barbecue, will go to My City Care Taber.
“Both organizations care a lot about this community and are dedicated to helping where we can,” Holst said. “Parallel Church is a key partner in the My City Care Taber program. Spider Entertainment has the experience and abilities to put on the concert. So we feel this is a great partnership for an amazing cause.”
Holst says that in planning the event, both groups felt like a successful Canadian country artist would be a great draw to get information out to as many people as possible about My City Care Taber, and to also help as many people as possible that are in need.
My City Care Taber, Holst says, helps people through programs like Healthy Heroes, which provides barrier-free nourishing lunches in Taber’s local schools. The Thankful Box/ Easter Dinner Box provides specialized dinner boxes on both Easter and Thanksgiving complete with an entire meal plus dessert for their families to celebrate the holidays. Night to Shine, which is sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, works with organizations to provide an unforgettable grad-like experience centered on people with special needs ages 14 plus. Stuff the Bus, which is a back-to-school initiative, supports families in a season where they may be struggling to keep up with life’s extra expenses. The Cinderella Project, a project that provides students who have faced financial hardships with the formal attire and services they need to graduate with their peers, creates an experience to remember. Finally, there is Shop of Wonders, a Christmas campaign for families facing financial hardship over the holidays.
“This is an exciting event with amazing country music for a very worthy cause,” Holst said.
In case of inclement weather, the community center will serve as an alternate venue.
