2016 CONCERT FOR HEALTHCARE WALK-IN HOURS MONDAY - FRIDAY 7 AM - 9 AM SATURDAY 8 AM - 10 AM NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY 1401 EAST H STREET 344-4110
HOME OF BISON SPORTS FOR 38 YEARS!
Community Hospital is excited to announce the 2016 Concert for Healthcare will feature Confederate Railroad Saturday, April 2 at the historic Fox Theatre in McCook. Brett Alan & The CRB Band will open the evening. Tickets go on sale in March. This concert will be the fourth in as many years to bring nationally known talent to entertain audiences on behalf of patients receiving care at Community Hospital. Confederate Railroad is best known for their major hits. Songs like “Queen of Memphis,” Trashy Women, Jesus and Mama,” and “Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind.” From rowdy country to raw emotion, a Confederate Railroad concert covers a wide range of feelings and appeals to ages from young to old. “The band limits their performances to 100 or so each year,” said Terri Shipshock, Community Hospital Health Foundation Executive Director. “We are fortunate to have booked this group to provide local entertainment on behalf of healthcare services.” Net proceeds will allow Community Hospital Health Foundation to fund life-saving, state-of-the-art equipment, support staff education, and assist patients when it is needed the most. “It is our goal that with the support of generous sponsors, 100% of your ticket purchase will go to support patient care services,” Shipshock said. “Your attendance at this beneficial event helps us preserve the facilities and programs that have been brought to our region.”
