Trace Adkins, Jimmie Allen + More Will Perform Borderline Benefit for Mass Shooting Victims
On Monday, Feb. 11, Borderline Bar & Grill will partner with the ACM Lifting Lives organization for ACM Lifting Lives Presents: Borderline Strong, an evening of musical performances set to take place at the Fred Kavli Center, at the Thousand Oaks Civic Center in Thousand Oaks, Calif. The event will serve to benefit the victims, victims' families and survivors of the mass shooting that took place at the Borderline in November of 2018, which claimed the lives of 12 and injured many more.
Hosted by Charles Esten, the event will feature performances from Trace Adkins, Jimmie Allen, Cassadee Pope, Tyler Rich and Runaway June, with many more still to be announced. All net proceeds from the event will support the victims of the shooting as well as their families, via the Ventura County Community Foundation's Conejo Valley Victim's Fund.
"We are deeply grateful to ACM Lifting Lives for standing with the victims and survivors of this devastating tragedy," president and CEO of the foundation, Vanessa Bechtel, stated in a press release. "While we know that financial support cannot begin to alleviate the pain of this horrific event, we hope these funds will offer some basic aid and support during these difficult times of transition and recovery. Thank you to everyone working to ensure that those touched by this tragedy are assisted in every way possible."
Executive director of ACM Lifting Lives, Lyndsey Cruz, also added a statement from the organization about the upcoming benefit. "Our family of country music artists and industry representatives will always respond to the call for help during these times of need," she said. "Wee look forward to this very special evening where we can, once again, experience first-hand the healing power of music which is at the core of the ACM Lifting Lives mission."
A variety of ticketing options are available for the event, including VIP packages that additionally offers admission to a pre-reception before the music begins, in the company of a very special guest. For more info and to purchase tickets, visit www.Help4ThousandOaks.com.
