Lady Antebellum To Play Private Concert for Tornado Struck High School
The group is inviting the school's Juniors and Seniors to the KFC YUM! Center on May 16 for a private prom event followed by a post-party concert that will be open to the public.
All proceeds raised from the concert portion of Rebuilding Henryville will remain local through the New Hope/Indiana Bankers Association for the benefit of the Disaster Relief Fund.
"The whole community, especially the students, is excited about Lady Antebellum coming and performing for Henryville," said Superintendent of the West Clark Community Schools Monty Schneider. "They missed so much with the school being destroyed that things like this help them feel whole again. They will be talking about the tornadoes for the rest of their lives, but this event will give them something positive to reflect on about that time. It's going to be a special moment for the entire community."
"Helping rebuild this community is our biggest priority right now," said Lady A's Hillary Scott. "We were so moved by the stories from Henryville High School, but also from the students at their rival schools who raised their hands and said they wanted to help. There has been so much national media attention and so many sponsors and volunteers are stepping forward to help. It's going to be an amazing day!
