Christmas 4 Kids is a not-for-profit organization that has been in existence for over 25 years providing many children, each year, with their very own shopping spree. The funds generated by the concert, and the Tour Bus Show/Artist Meet and Greet event, are used to give over 400 children from 29 different schools, a day-long shopping excursion.  The special day consists of a chauffeured trip from their school aboard an entertainer’s luxury tour bus, lunch, and a party hosted by Santa and Mrs. Claus at College Heights Baptist Church. To wrap up the day, the tour buses journey to the Hendersonville, Tennessee Walmart, where the kids receive a brand new winter coat, and $150.00 to spend on anything they want!

Tickets for the concert are available through Christmas 4 Kids online at www.Christmas4kids.org, beginning September 15, 2011.
