Alan Jackson Plays Show For Colorado Wildfire Relief

Alan Jackson Does His Part To Help During The Colorado Wildfires.

Last week Alan Jackson played the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Recognizing the devastation the state of Colorado is currently experiencing with wildfires, Jackson expressed his support by partnering with AEG and KYGO/Denver to offer front row reserved tickets at a special premium price – all proceeds were donated to the Denver Foundation (the state’s oldest and largest community foundation) for use by the Colorado Wildfire Relief Fund created and designated by the governor. KYGO announced the tickets were available on the morning of show (Thursday, June 28) and within hours, several thousand dollars were raised.

“It’s just the saddest thing. I’m just heart broke about all the fires out here. We really appreciate all the great people that have been helping them out here. They sold some of the seats down here on a special deal to try and raise some money to help fight that battle – whoever bought those, that was mighty nice of y’all and I really appreciate it.” -Jackson told the crowd during the performance.

Donations for wildfire disaster relief efforts can be made by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS or by visiting the Colorado chapter’s website at www.coloradoredcross.org
