ACM Party for a Cause Festival Combines Country Music With Charitable Giving
The only thing better than hanging out outside and watching your favorite country artists perform is doing so with a good conscience. The Academy of Country Music's Party for a Cause Festival in Las Vegas brings The Band Perry, Dierks Bentley and other ACM-nominated artists to a festival that will benefit a number of non-profit organizations.
The Perry trio and Bentley will headline the festival on April 5 and 6, with Florida Georgia Line, Justin Moore, Brantley Gilbert, Dustin Lynch, Hunter Hayes and several other artists joining the lineup, too. The entertainment is sure to be top-notch, but these country crooners are all gathering in the name of raising money for several charities.
Friday's lineup--which will be capped off with an evening performance from The Band Perry--will benefit Outnumber Hunger. This initiative from General Mills, Big Machine Label Group and Feeding America helps to secure meals for a network of local food banks. In between shows, festival attendees will have the opportunity to clock some volunteer hours by participating in on-site activities that will help Feeding America provide food for the hungry.
On Saturday, Kix Brooks will present charitable gifts to military-inspired non-profit organizations like Wounded Warrior Project, Folds of Honor and Nellis Air Force Base Youth Education Programs.
“Party for a Cause Festival is adding another layer to The ACM Experience for fans to celebrate country music, as well as learn more about these very deserving organizations," said Bob Romeo, CEO of The Academy of Country Music, in a statement. "The Academy has a long history of supporting charitable causes, and we’re honored to be partnering with Big Machine Label Group and these talented artists for such a worthy endeavor."
