Thank you Austin!
Austin, TX (April 19, 2013)- The Willie Nelson & Family show celebrating Willie's birthday and the 20th Anniversary of The Backyard, now has new meaning resulting from the tragedies that happened to our neighbors in West, TX.
The following statement was made on Willie Nelson's website late yesterday. "West is just a few miles from my hometown of Abbott. I was born and raised here and it was my backyard growing up. This is my community. These friends and neighbors have always been and are still apart of my life. My heart is praying for the community that we call home." - Willie Nelson
Proceeds from Willie Nelson's previously scheduled performance at The Backyard in Austin, TX on April 28th will now benefit the West Volunteer Fire Department. Please go to www.willienelson.com
for updates on how you can help through donations of goods and funds, including making blood donations to the Red Cross for West, Texas.
Nelson has spearheaded many fundraisers such as Farm Aid and locally here in Austin and surrounding areas. This show will be an opportunity for Texans to support Willie in this effort to aid his hometown in their time of need. There will be more opportunities to contribute at the event. The event will also be attended by firefighters to help in these efforts.
