The United Way of Loudoun County announced Monday plans for a concert to benefit area non-profit social service organizations.
Loudoun LIVE! will be held Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Paxton Campus in Leesburg and will feature the bands Lowest of the Low, Todd Wright, Frayed Knots, and Big Bad Juju on its main stage. Emerging local artists will be featured on a second stage.
Tickets, which are $30 in advance and $40 at the door, are on sale at loudounlive.org
“Loudoun has a special place in its heart for music, so we saw an opportunity to engage our community in an event that would raise awareness and resources for United Way partner non-profits,” Amy Bobchek, chair of the United Way of Loudoun County Regional Council Loudoun, said in announcing the program. “LIVE! will be a celebration of everything that makes this place so special. All of the proceeds from this event will make a positive difference, so we hope our community will come out to support their neighbors in need and hear some fantastic bands.”
As a benefit concert, the United Way will apply 100 percent of the event’s proceeds to non-profit organizations and initiatives in Loudoun County. Last year, the Loudoun Council awarded $100,000 in grants to nonprofits. Several organizations will be on hand at the concert’s “Nonprofit Village,” sharing information with concert attendees and recruiting volunteers.
Area businesses and an army of volunteers already have signed on to help with the event. Toth Financial Advisory Corporation is the title sponsor of the event. Omnilert is the Main Stage sponsor, and Construction Bonds, Inc. is the Emerging Artists Stage sponsor. Loudoun Now and WINC-FM are the event’s official media partners. A full sponsor list, information about how support the event or contribute to the Loudoun Council’s Community Impact Fund, and other details are available at loudounlive.org.
