Posted on: July 3, 2012

A report Saturday (6/30) on the KKTV 11 News website (Colorado Springs) states, “KKTV 11 News is joining with local charities, entertainers and media outlets to sponsor a wildfire relief benefit concert at the World Arena. The concert, dubbed ‘A Community Rises’ will be held on July 4. The concert will feature the Colorado Springs Philharmonic along with appearances by the Flying W Wranglers, Michael Martin Murphey, and Flash Cadillac. KKTV 11 News Anchors Dianne Derby and Don Ward will join with other television news anchors as masters of ceremony. Tickets for the one-night-only concert are available at the World Arena and Pikes Peak Center box offices, area King Soopers, and all TicketsWest outlets. Victims can also get tickets at area shelters and the Disaster Relief Center at 105 North Spruce. Attendees will have the opportunity to make monetary donations to the Waldo Canyon Victims’ Assistance Fund at the event. Thanks to a generous group of underwriters led by the Colorado Springs Independent and Focus on the Family, 100% of the funds raised at the concert will go directly to the Waldo Canyon Fire relief efforts.”
