Encino, CA (January 23, 2019) – ACM Lifting Lives® and Borderline Bar & Grill are teaming up to present a night of special music performances at ACM Lifting Lives Presents: Borderline Strong, an evening dedicated to Help, Hope and Healing, on Monday, February 11 in Thousand Oaks, California. Hosted by Charles Esten, the one-night-only concert will feature Trace Adkins, Jimmie Allen, Charles Esten, Cassadee Pope, Tyler Rich, Runaway June and more to be announced at the Fred Kavli Theatre in the Thousand Oaks Civic Center. In acknowledgement of the shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill which killed 12 people and injured many more in Thousand Oaks, the country music community, families of previous gun violence and the Hollywood entertainment community are uniting to support victims and their families via the Ventura County Community Foundation’s Conejo Valley Victim’s Fund, which all net proceeds from the event will benefit.
“We are deeply grateful to ACM Lifting Lives for standing with the victims and survivors of this devastating tragedy. While we know that financial support cannot begin to alleviate the pain of this horrific event, we hope these funds will offer some basic aid and support during these difficult times of transition and recovery. Thank you to everyone working to ensure that those touched by this tragedy are assisted in every way possible,” said Vanessa Bechtel, President & CEO of the Ventura County Community Foundation.
“ACM Lifting Lives is honored to present this evening to raise much needed dollars for all directly impacted by this tragedy,” said Lyndsay Cruz, Executive Director of ACM Lifting Lives, the charitable arm of the Academy of Country Music. “Our family of country music artists and industry representatives will always respond to the call for help during these times of need. We look forward to this very special evening where we can, once again, experience first-hand the healing power of music which is at the core of the ACM Lifting Lives mission.”
Tickets for this special evening vary in price with the option to purchase a VIP ticket which includes a pre-reception, with a special guest appearance before the event begins.
