|The 11th Annual Christmas for Kids Benefit Concert at the legendary Ryman Auditorium is officially SOLD OUT! All the merriment is set to begin on Monday, November 19th at 7pm. Artists lending their time, talent and Christmas spirit this year include Charlie Daniels, Montgomery Gentry, Taylor Swift, Rodney Atkins and Chris Young .
The Christmas For Kids Organization has been in existence for over twenty years providing special children the opportunity to celebrate the holiday season. Each year, the organization brings the spirit of Christmas to hundreds of children throughout Middle Tennessee allowing them to participate in festive activities organized specifically for them. Events such as the Tour Bus Tour, which will happen on December 17, 2007, raise money and allow folks to visit the home-away-from-homes of more than fifty stars and celebrities at the Hendersonville Wal*Mart from 5:00 – 9:00PM.
The money raised at both events, the concert and Tour Bus Tour, is used to escort children from 25 different schools for a day-long excursion. The day consists of a chauffeured trip from their school aboard a country music star's luxury tour bus to a local Wal*Mart where they are accompanied by a volunteer to participate in their own Christmas shopping spree. On the return trip home, the children will participate in a Christmas carol sing-along.
All proceeds from the Tour Bus Show and the Charlie Daniels & Friends Benefit Concert (sponsored in part by 95.5 The Wolf) will be donated toward the children's Christmas Shopping Spree.
