“We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Sheryl Crow will be our musical guest at Charity Preview,” said NAIAS Chairman Bob Shuman. “Her performance will crown what is already one of Detroit’s most spectacular evenings, and the largest single night fundraiser for children’s charities in North America.”
The special performance will take place in the new Cobo Atrium from 9-10:15 pm, said Shuman. “When the auto show floor closes, the party begins in the riverfront atrium,” he said.
Sheryl Crow will also headline a free concert when the Canadian Pacific (CP) Holiday Train makes its annual stop at Cottage Grove, MN on December 14, 2013.
“We are thrilled to be performing with Sheryl Crow, whom we’ve all admired and followed for years. It is particularly special because of the worthy cause this event is serving,” said Claude McKnight, founding member of Take 6.
“The Friends in Need Food Shelf has been helping the residents in South Washington County for the past 21 years. We will serve around 38,000 people this year and we are so excited for this special Holiday Train and Concert to come to Cottage Grove,” said Friends in Need Food Shelf Director Michelle Rageth. “The cash that is raised from this event constitutes almost half of our Food Shelf budget and we are able to get the best food deals possible with the money collected.”
Rageth added, “Because we know that some people will want to donate items, we’d like to suggest toiletries such as shampoo, toilet paper, paper towels, deodorant, bar soap, toothbrushes, diapers and feminine products. These products are in short supply at the food shelf and will be a great gift to our clients! We want to stress how grateful we are for this amazing community that supports us so generously—we couldn’t do it without you!”
“This is one Holiday Train stop you do not want to miss! I am very excited to welcome everyone—from our community to the upper Midwest and beyond—to this once-in-a-lifetime event. When I learned Sheryl Crow would headline the free concert I knew this was going to be the biggest event we’ve ever had in Cottage Grove,” said Cottage Grove Mayor Myron Bailey. “I was honored to learn we were the only city in the United States chosen to host this special anniversary show. I invite everyone to make plans to join me at the Cottage Grove Holiday Train stop to enjoy the winter wonderland, the concert and help out our local food shelf.”
