Alan Jackson Heads to Mineral, VA for Benefit Concert.
Alan Jackson is currently scheduled to perform a benefit concert in Mineral, VA, but the town’s mayor, Pam Hawlowe says that money still needs to be raised to fund the event.
The concert is intended to raise support for the area around Mineral and those who live there after the August 2011 earthquake that rocked the east coast. Jackson waived his fee for performing, but Hawlowe reports the county still need around $200,000 to make sure the performance can go forward. They are currently requesting aid from local and near-local businesses and companies.
All proceeds made from the show would go straight to the community to help rebuild and repair the area. As of now, the concert is scheduled for Sunday, May 20th at the Louisa County High School.
