We are incredibly excited to announce the return of Nashville duo, JillandKate, to our Keepin’ It Country Presents Stage! Keepin’ It Country Presents is teaming up with JillandKate to combat cancer with our first ever “Concert for a Cure.”
This show, the first in our Concert for a Cure series, will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), a foundation which increases awareness for blood cancers and raises funds for research of those cancers. “One person in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer approximately every four minutes. An estimated combined total of 149,990 people in the United States will be diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma in 2013. New cases of leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma will account for 9 percent of the 1,660,290 new cancer cases diagnosed in the United States this year.”
Through programs like Team in Training and Light the Night, individuals increase awareness for blood cancers and raise funds for related research while competing in endurance events all over the world. The staff members at Keepin’ It Country, along with JillandKate, seek to raise awareness and assistance for LLS through its first Concert for a Cure. We encourage each person who attends JillandKate’s show to wear purple, LLS’ signature color and the color of its Team in Training jerseys, and take pictures of themselves watching JillandKate’s very special performance. We ask that you submit your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org, as our staff writer and legal counsel, Jen, is a Team in Training member and will be creating a collage of your support pictures to showcase on her personal fundraising page. During the show, we would love for you all to post your pictures using #KICLLS on Twitter!
Tickets are available right now on Stageit and you can purchase yours by clicking here. Tickets are “pay what you can” (with all ticket proceeds going to LLS, while all tips will go directly to JillandKate), so come one, come all! So come out, raise awareness for a great cause, and support our friends, JillandKate!
JillandKate hit the stage on Sunday, October 20th at 8 pm EST. Let us know when you get your tickets, and stay tuned for news on JillandKate and Keepin’ it Country!
