January 2019 Concerts for a Cause (CFAC) open 2019 with its January concert featuring The Steel Wheels, a fantastic four-piece acoustic band from Virginia that plays a variety of folk and Americana roots music. “The Steel Wheels are very popular on the East Coast, and they don’t get to the Midwest very often, so this will be a great treat for our guests,” said Steve Neely, CFAC cofounder. The opening act is Indy native Chris Wilson. A folk/pop singer-songwriter who has played all around the world and lived in Europe for many years, he is now back home. We are proud to be the media sponsor for Concerts for a Cause again this year and to support the great work that they do. As you may recall, CFAC donates all the proceeds of each concert to a different local charity. For the January concert, CFAC is supporting the Westminster Neighborhood Services, an organization that provides a variety of vital services and products for residents of the economically disadvantaged of the near- eastside of Indianapolis. Ticket are $75 each, and a ticket purchase includes great food prepared by the head chef at the Lucas Estate, all drinks and the two live concerts. Guests also get to meet the artists. This concert kicks off our fourth season of Concerts for a Cause. There will be concerts in April, July and October. Attendance is limited to 300 people, which makes the event a very intimate concert experience. “We are delighted with the growth of Concerts for a Cause over the past year with sold-out events and lots of new people attending these fun evenings of entertainment with an important mission. That support allowed us to donate almost $75,000 in 2018 to four local organizations helping kids and families in need. We expect the 2019 season to be our best to date, and we will continue to do all the good we can, in all the ways we can, for as many people as we can, for as long as we can,” said Bruce Kidd, cofounder of CFAC.
