St. Andrew’s ‘By Request Only’ Concert Fundraiser – Sept 16th, 2016
On Friday evening, September 16, St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church will join with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Nebraska (LLS) for our Fourth Annual By Request Only concert fundraiser.
Billy McGuigan and Jimmy Weber, along with Tara Vaughan and the By Request Only Band, will entertain us once more at the lovely indoor venue at Lauritzen Gardens. The energy and chemistry of these musicians can’t be beat, and Billy and Jimmy are both invested in our fundraising effort. LLS holds special significance for Billy McGuigan, whose father battled leukemia. Our other headliner, Jimmy Weber, also has a heart for charity work and, as a former member of the band at our 9 AM service for many years, he has a special attachment to our church. This year, Billy and Jimmy have promised a night to remember!
The concert will begin at 7:30 PM in Lauritzen’s Great North Hall. General Admission tickets are $25 now, $35 at the door. You can order online from brownpapertickets.com or buy tickets on Sundays at St. Andrew’s from Susie Thorne, Ron Dunic or another member of the By Request Only committee. Tickets are also available in the office Monday through Friday – but we recommend calling first to make sure someone is available. 402-391-1950.
VIP tickets for a pre-concert meet-and-greet reception at 6:00 PM with the musicians and reserved concert seating are available for $100 and are available to both individuals and groups. These tickets can be purchased online (www.brownpapertickets.com) or at church from Susie or Ron Dunic. Tables for ten, at a cost of $1,000, are available for sponsoring organizations. Individual tickets to the $100/seat VIP event are also available. Folks can also join with friends and put together their own tables of ten as well!
For those who haven’t had an opportunity to attend this event, we highly encourage you to join in the fun and support these two great organizations. Talk to anyone who has enjoyed the concert in years past, and you are bound to hear rave reviews. So mark your calendars, buy your tickets, and look forward to a wonderful evening of music. And feel good knowing you are supporting both St. Andrew’s Outreach Ministry and the LLS efforts to find cures and ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients. See you on the 16th!
