The Priceless Gift of Hope Foundation: Country Singer Paul Brandt Announces Edmonton 'Up from the Ashes' Benefit Concert in Support of Slave Lake

Proceeds from the concert will benefit a community project in Slave Lake, Alberta

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 2, 2011) - Following the devastating fires that swept through Slave Lake, Alberta on May 15, 2011, Paul Brandt, along with your Alberta Ford Dealers and UFA Co-operative Limited (UFA) are proud to present "Up From The Ashes", a benefit concert for Slave Lake. The concert will feature award-winning Country music performer Paul Brandt and special guests High Valley.

The concert will take place at the Francis Winspear Centre for Music in Edmonton, Alberta on Wednesday, September 14, with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.

"Roughly 40 per cent of Slave Lake was destroyed by fires, and residents are struggling to re-build their community and their lives. In using my music, I wanted to acknowledge their challenges, celebrate their courage, and raise funds for an important cause," said Paul Brandt. "Proceeds from the concert will benefit a yet-to-be-named project in Slave Lake that responds to both the current and future needs of this devastated community."

Brandt and the concert partners share a common desire to ensure that the plight of Slave Lake residents is not forgotten, by encouraging Canadians to keep this long-term recovery effort front of mind.

Concert tickets will go on sale Friday, August 5 at 10 a.m. MT, with ticket prices at $49, $75 and $99 plus service charges. Tickets can be purchased online at www.winspearcentre.com, or by calling (780) 428-1414.
