Country music superstar Alan Jackson will take his show to the small town of Mineral, VA – population 490 – on Sunday, May 20 at 8:00pm in the parking lot of Louisa County High School. In an effort to help raise money for the Louisa Education Foundation (LEF), tickets for Smithfield Presents “Alan Jackson: Music for Mineral” Live Concert Event will go on sale April 4 at 10:00am ET through www.ticketfly.com.
Funds raised for the Louisa Education Foundation (LEF) will be used to assist the county public schools in their rebuilding efforts as a result of an August 2011 earthquake. The fund will help in the rebuilding of the Louisa County High School and be earmarked for replacement of the school’s extensively-used auditorium. The Louisa County High School is currently condemned after earthquake damage.
In addition to the concert, The Alan Jackson Charity Golf Classic will be held at The Royal Virginian Golf Course on the morning of Saturday, May 19. For details on registering as a player or team, please visit http://www.theroyalvirginian.com/Tournaments.html. All proceeds from the tournament will help fund LEF.
Jackson’s concert is the culmination of a national campaign. Fans across the country had two months last fall to vote, with the winning city receiving a concert from Jackson. The little town of Mineral amassed over 31,000 votes and won the opportunity to host the concert. Mineral continues to repair and rebuild after they were the epicenter of a rare East Coast earthquake that hit on August 23, 2011, causing widespread damage in the region
