Country for Kids concert at DPAC to benefit N.C. Children's Hospital

Curtis Media Group has announced a charity concert, dubbed “Country for Kids,” to contribute to the ninth annual N.C. Children’s Promise Radiothon/Telethon. Tickets for the concert— held at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 18, at the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC)—go on sale this Friday, Aug. 20, at 10 a.m., with proceeds benefiting the N.C. Children’s Hospital.

“We are very excited about the addition of the Country for Kids to this year’s radiothon/telethon,” said Dr. Alan Stiles, chief physician of N.C. Children’s Hospital. “We anticipate the concert event will expose an entirely new audience to the Children’s Hospital’s life-saving mission and raise tens of thousands of dollars.”

Presented by 94.7 WQDR, Country for Kids will feature live performances by four artists, Uncle Kracker, Rodney Atkins, Clay Walker and North Carolina’s very own Jason Michael Carroll. The concert event will be the celebratory culmination of a day full of miraculous stories being broadcast live from the N.C. Children’s Hospital lobby on nearly 20 Curtis Media Group radio stations and Time Warner Cable’s News 14 Carolina as part of the N.C. Children’s Promise Radiothon/Telethon, UNC Health Care’s largest fundraising event each year.

Limited VIP packages are also available for a premium price and will include choice seating in front of the stage and a pre-concert reception with various performers from the evening.
