The 10th Annual Christmas 4 Kids Concert Adds Colt Ford And Joe Nichols To Line-Up!
Nashville, TN – Top country artists Colt Ford and Joe Nichols have just been announced as the latest additions to the line-up for the 10th Anniversary of the Charlie Daniels Band & Friends Concert to benefit Christmas 4 Kids (a division of Christmas For Kids, Inc.). They will be joining previously announced artists Phil Vassar and Sawyer Brown to round out the line-up for this special event. The Charlie Daniels Band will also take the stage throughout the night, as Daniels will play host for entire evening.
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.
