Each year, lives are transformed because our families, board members and community partners come together for a common purpose — ensuring a Christian education is accessible for students and families. For many, this is the launch pad for a lifetime of success.
JACKSON, Tenn. (PRWEB) June 21, 2018
Jackson Christian will host pop vocal group Anthem Lights for the school’s sixth scholarship fundraiser. An Evening with Anthem Lights will be Tuesday, Aug. 28, at 832 Country Club Lane in Jackson (on campus).
Band members Caleb Grimm, Chad Graham, Spencer Kane and Joey Stamper make up Anthem Lights. The group has been on multiple national tours and scored numerous Top 10 radio singles, with success coming from the foursome’s vocal prowess, creative mash-ups and reinventions of pop favorites. With soaring harmonies, reinvention of hit songs and focused fan interaction, Anthem Lights has quickly become the go-to group for music fans of all ages.
“I think the most unique thing about us is that we do all kinds of music. Our musical diversity is our identity,” Graham said.
During the past five years, this Jackson Christian event has raised more than $475,000 and helped more than 350 deserving students afford a Christian education.
Dr. Mark Benton, president of Jackson Christian, emphasized the importance of this event and those it serves, as he said, “Each year, lives are transformed because our families, board members and community partners come together for a common purpose — ensuring a Christian education is accessible for students and families. For many, this is the launch pad for a lifetime of success.”
Previous scholarship event performers have been Pam Tillis, Lonestar, Lee Ann Womack, singer-songwriter Edwin McCain and Diamond Rio, who performed at last year’s event.
Sponsorships for the fundraiser include event and program recognition, dinner and concert seating, passes for a private reception and photo opportunities with the artists (varying by sponsorship level). Forever Communications serves as media sponsors for the fundraiser.
