Special Guests Include Britt Nicole, Mikeschair and Finding Favour
Nashville, Tenn.…June 30, 2010… Back by popular demand, Building 429’s Annual Summerfest Tour kicks off July 6 in Dodge City, Kansas with the support of Christian radio partners in each market. This year the tour is partnering with Food for the Hungry, and also features the talents of Britt Nicole, Mikeschair and special guests Finding Favour.
After ending a month-long Canadian tour in June, headlining act Building 429 recently traveled to Haiti joining Food For The Hungry to aid in earthquake relief efforts. So moved by what they saw and the Haitian people they met, Summerfest 2010 is partnering with Food For The Hungry to seek child sponsorships specifically in Haiti, which aid children who have been displaced by the 2010 earthquake.
“After being in Haiti just a couple months ago, the work of Food For The Hungry has rooted itself even deeper in our hearts,” said Building 429’s front man Jason Roy. “We’re proud to be partnering with them on this upcoming summer tour, working to save the lives of thousands of Haitian children. Spreading the mission of Food For The Hungry is an honor and we are excited to do it on the Summerfest 2010 tour.”
Summerfest 2010 runs through August 20, visiting 13 cities. Tickets for the family-friendly event are available at the door for the low cost of $5, except for a few select markets. For more information about Food For The Hungry’s Summerfest 2010 tour, visit the tour website at www.FHSummerFest.com.
