The United Women’s Prayer Corps, a nonprofit organization in Halifax County, is hosting a concert at the Roanoke Rapids Theatre in Roanoke Rapids, NC on Saturday, August 11, 2012. The headline act is country music singer Aaron Tippin and there will be local performers as well. Aaron is a spokesperson for the Paralyzed Veterans of America and has traveled to the Middle East each year at Thanksgiving to perform for the troops.
Our organization is dedicated to recruiting women across the US to pray each day for our troops, veterans, and nation. We also offer encouragement to our military through prayer hankies, care packages, and a Veteran’s Day breakfast, among other things. The purpose of this concert is to increase the awareness of our organization, to raise funds for several veterans’ groups, and to honor veterans attending the concert.
The tickets can be purchased online at rrcitytheatre.com and at the Roanoke Valley Chamber of Commerce in Roanoke Rapids at a cost of $25-$35. They can also be purchased at the Hobgood July 4th Celebration in Hobgood. The tickets for veterans include a wine and cheese reception with Aaron Tippin and the other performers at 6pm in the VIP room at the Roanoke Rapids Theatre, a pre-show at 7:30, and the headline event at 8pm featuring Chickweed & Friends with Sara Dew and then an amazing Aaron Tippin concert honoring our troops and veterans.
This will be a great evening of music and fellowship!
