Presenting Sponsor of the Wild South Benefit Tour with Keller Williams and The Stray Birds
Red Wing, MN – February 16, 2015 – Vasque performance footwear cares about ensuring the protection of our wild spaces. To show their support for protecting natural spaces for everyone to enjoy, throughout the Southeast, Vasque is partnering with Wild South as the Presenting Sponsor of the Wild South Benefit Tour with Keller Williams and The Stray Birds.
Wild South is a non-profit organization based in Asheville, NC, whose mission is to inspire people to enjoy, value and protect the wild character and natural legacy of the South. In March 2015, they are joining forces with the one-man bluegrass funk band, Keller Williams and The Stray Birds, for three nights of fun, music and dancing, all to raise money for the preservation and restoration of the South’s natural landscapes.
“Vasque is dedicated to making high-quality, performance footwear to get people out on the trails and enjoying our natural spaces,” says Vasque Marketing Manager, Julie Quinn. “Part of that dedication is giving back to groups, such as Wild South, who work to maintain and protect our wilderness areas.”
The Wild South Benefit Tour with Keller Williams and The Stray Birds will kick off their three-day tour in Birmingham, Alabama at WorkPlay on March 26th, 2015. The next night they will play at Track 29 in Chattanooga, TN and will conclude the tour at The Orange Peel in Asheville, NC on March 28th. General admission to the event is $20 and a VIP ticket, which includes food, drink, a meet and greet with Keller Williams and a signed poster, is $50. Proceeds will go to Wild South.
