Aaron Pritchett & Ray Mussell Bring Live Music ToElk Point Charity
2nd Chance Trail Ride Society is hosting a fundraiser in Elk Point on May 8, 2021 along with their annual trail ride. Due to COVID-19 the trail ride will look a bit different this year with a staggered start and social distancing.
2nd Chance Trail Ride Society is an organization that raises funds and awareness about organ and tissue donation. They host multiple types of fundraisers throughout the year such as, a golf tournament and trail rides.
This year along with the annual trail ride, the 2nd Chance Trail Ride Society is hosting a drive-in live music concert called Tunes and Tailgates, featuring a guest Canadian country singer, Aaron Pritchett. The event will include performances by Ray Mussell of Paradise Motel, Cross Parallel, as well a musical duo from British Columbia with Jordan Pritchett, and Alberta born-and-bred Danielle Marie King. The event will also include a performance from another Albertan and rising country singer, Chantelle Mussell.
“We are excited about the event and to be a part of the event, and we are looking forward to bringing this live drive-in experience to the people in the surrounding communities to get out and enjoy some live music in a safe manner,” commented founder of Morcomm PR & Events, Sheila Moore.
All proceeds from the drive-in concert will go towards supporting the 2nd Chance Trail Ride Society raising awareness about organ and tissue donation, and to continue to support transplant patients through their challenging times.
Guests can bring as many people as there are seat belts in their vehicle, and watch from either inside their car or sit outside of their car to enjoy the live music.
“If the weather is good you will be able to get out of your car, of course wearing your mask, staying in your area beside your car. We are going to set up the parking to make that work. The show is live but it will also play through your radio through your FM transmitter. No food or drink, we won’t be providing any of that in order to make the event COVID safe. So, we want to make sure people are staying safe and staying distanced. It is a family event of course, so kids are welcome!” commented Moore
Admission for the show is $120.00 per vehicle, plus applicable fees, and taxes. 10 VIP spots are available at $300 per vehicle with prime viewing at the front of the site, plus a table and chairs for two and refreshments.
“I realize the impact this event in Elk Point will have in raising funds and awareness for this great cause. I am beyond honored to be a part of it,” said Aaron Pritchett. “Get your tickets and join us for a lot of fun and some great LIVE music that we’ve all been missing so much!”
Organizers of the event have been working alongside Alberta Health Services and Health Canada to ensure that the COVID-19 health and safety measure are properly in place for the safety of their guests, volunteers, staff, and performers. Because it is a drive-in concert there are limited tickets. To purchase tickets visit www.2ndCTR.com
