The 6th Annual Evening of hope & inspiration awards

The 6th Annual Evening of Hope and Inspiration is set for Saturday, Nov 21, 2015 at the Booth Playhouse at 7:30pm.  The event is sure to sell out quick.  Ty Herndon, country superstar, will headline the annual charity event, with proceeds to benefit the Jeanne White Ginder Food Pantry at Different Roads Home, Inc.  Also appearing is Charlotte’s own One Voice Chorus and Addison Moon.  The Humanitarian of the year award is going out to blogger and Pastor John Pavlovitz and also appearing is Jeanne White Ginder, Ryan White’s mother. All orchestra seating is set at only $35.00 and all Gallery Seating is set at $25.00.

VIP Packages are on sale for $125.00 and include the following:  One reserved seat in first five rows of theater, private pre-show reception with Ty and the other guests, photo and autograph opportunities, swag bag, one cocktail ticket, and appetizer buffet. 

Ty Herndon has always been all about the ties that bind. You feel it when he’s singing deeply moving No. 1 hits like “What Mattered Most” and “Living in a Moment.” You get it just as much when he’s goofing around with the audience between songs in concert making every attendee laugh. Even in a genre that already prides itself on relatability, he might be the king of connecting.

Now, with the release of Lies I Told Myself, his first country album in seven years, he’s bonding with fans in a new way. Herndon invited folks to be direct participants in the album launch via a well-publicized Kickstarter campaign that made fans investors in the record… financially and, more critically, emotionally. His devotees came through by more than doubling the goal laid out at the outset. The love that goes both ways here, between performer and audience? It’s no lie.
