Phil Vassar singing Love is Alive

Phil Vassar returns to Lynchburg as he has done for many years to perform a benefit concert for the Miller Home.  Phil is unusual in that he remembers his roots and returns home to donate his time and share his talents for this annual fundraiser for the Miller Home for Girls which offers a safe haven to young women who, for whatever reason, are unable to live at home.

As a child, Phil Vassar attended church next to the Miller Home and his youth group used to sing there when he was a teenager.  After moving to Nashville and making it in the music business, Phil remembered those days at the Miller Home and decided to support them by performing and donating 100% of the proceeds to the home.  Phil also has done a benefit concert for St. Jude Children’s Hospital and Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital.  OK, I admit, I really didn’t know much about Phil Vassar before I started writing this blog post, but I must say that I am impressed with the man because he is so generous in helping organizations that help children.  That alone should be reason enough for you to buy a ticket, even if you aren’t familiar with him or if you don’t care for country music.

This years concert will be April 2-3, 2014.  There will be an acoustic benefit concert held downtown Lynchburg (walking distance from The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast). Tickets for this event are $125.00 for an individual ticket, $600.00 for a half table (6 guests) or $1,200 for a full table for 12 guests.  This event is limited to 250 guests so it will offer an intimate environment where you will be able to be close to the star.  On April 3 Phil Vassar and friends will play at  Phase 2 in Lynchburg.  VIP tickets are $95.00 and include a balcony lounge, dinner and acoustic concert by a friend of Phil Vassar (last year Charlie Daniels and Robbin Thompson came to Lynchburg with Phil) during dinner.  If you just want to hear Phil Vassar, general admission tickets are only $35.00.

Since The Miller Home for Girls opened its doors in 1875, it has cared for more than 900 young women ages four to eighteen, from different counties, cities and even states. The home strives to provide a traditional family environment while addressing the individual needs, behaviors, and goals of each young woman that comes through the doors.  Tickets to the Phil Vassar concert can be purchased using your credit card by calling the Miller Home at 434-845-0241 during regular business hours or if you are in town, you can stop by the Miller Home at 2134 Westerly Drive to purchase your tickets where they only take cash or checks.
