Some of the biggest names in Country music will “Play in Peoria” with more than 17 acts coming together over 3 days for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, all to help raise awareness in the fight against childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.
Jennifer Nettles, Big & Rich, Montgomery Gentry, Kellie Pickler, Randy Houser and more, will join headliners Brad Paisley, Hank Williams Jr., and Trace Adkins, July 18-20, 2014 at Ravina on the Lakes in Peoria, IL.
“Proceeds from ticket sales, merchandise, memorabilia and a text to donate campaign are some of the opportunities to raise funds”, explains Brad Maloney, VP of Blu Entertainment Group and organizer of the festival. “We are honored to be partners with St. Jude, this charity is very dear to so many in our community”.
“St. Jude is thankful for this partnership with Country Life Music Festival. The group of artists and business partners making this event possible are all long-time St. Jude supporters. Seeing the community embrace this event, country music and the mission of helping kids with cancer and other deadly diseases is truly inspiring” says Michael Joseph, President of the St. Jude Midwest Affiliate Board.
“It’s amazing how many people and how many companies have reached out to get involved,” adds Maloney. “Coors Light has been announced as the Title Sponsor, Cumulus Radio and their NASH FM brand is on board, as well as local companies R.J. Distributing, Petersen Hotels and Morton Buildings. It’s really coming together, and we have some surprises planned”, promises Maloney. “This is going to be a great event for St. Jude, the artists, and our entire community”.
Ravina on the Lakes is set in the midst of a 120 acre private park, just minutes from the Grand Prairie Mall and Interstate 474 in Peoria.
