Sister Hazel to Headline Columbia’s Inaugural Rock for Recovery Concert Presented by Elliott Davis

September concert to benefit the LRADAC Foundation Recovery Scholarship Fund

Columbia, SC – Platinum-selling band Sister Hazel returns to the Midlands for LRADAC Foundation’s inaugural Rock for Recovery concert presented by Elliott Davis. Proceeds from the event will be used to help fund programs that benefit individuals and families impacted by addiction.

The concert will take place on September 26, 2019, from 5 to 10 p.m. at BullStreet District’s newest music venue, Central Energy, located at 2030 Gregg St in Columbia, S.C.  Complimentary appetizers and mocktails will be served during the event. Tickets are $40 and will be available for sale July 1 at rock4recovery.eventbrite.com.

In 2017, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health reported that 19.7 million Americans (age 12 and older) battled a substance use disorder. LRADAC Foundation’s priority is to heal families by making treatment accessible and affordable to residents of Lexington and Richland counties. The concert is a welcome addition to the foundation’s lineup of Rock for Recovery initiatives taking place during September, National Recovery Month.

“There are no words to describe the outpouring of love and support we have felt going into our fifth annual fundraising event,” said LRADAC Foundation Executive Director Kaytee Watson. “The observance, which started with volunteers rocking in rocking chairs along Columbia’s Main Street, is morphing into a much bigger movement that we can all be a part of.”

Proceeds from ticket sales, merchandise and an open auction will be donated to the LRADAC Foundation Recovery Scholarship Fund. Scholarships allow persons facing financial hardship to apply for funding to cover the cost of treatment services at LRADAC. Since 2011, the LRADAC Foundation has awarded over $480,000.00 in scholarship funding for individuals and families who have completed LRADAC services.

“At Elliott Davis, we’re committed to making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work,” said Scott McClelland, shareholder for Elliott Davis. “We’re thrilled to sponsor this unique event and help support all the meaningful work LRADAC is doing to touch lives throughout the Midlands.”
