A giveaway – live, at Five Rocks: Jimmy Fortune
The right concert, set outdoors on a soft summer night, has a way of pinging through the atmosphere to transport me into bliss.
Jimmy Fortune has quite a few popular songs, like On The Other Side and I Believe. (I have to crack up for a moment about this song. I had never heard it except when my mother sang it when she was summoning my sister Beth.)
Five Rocks Amphitheater in Gering has an absolutely lovely view, and the summer nights around here are dry and cool off to fantastically comfortable temperatures.
This concert is a cornerstone of fundraiser support for FARM’s activities. Thanks to awesome sponsors – this year, Regional West Medical Center, 21st Century Equipment, and WESTCO (Woooo! Props to sponsors!) – 100% of ticket sales go directly to FARM.
I am selling tickets (I have 20 of them!), and I want to make my own contribution to the effort. SO . . . .
I will buy two adult tickets and give them away to a randomly selected commenter on this blog post who shares a favorite summer memory. You can share as many memories as you like, but you’ll only get one entry per person. Deadline to post your comment: Noon (mountain time) on Saturday, August 18 – one week before the concert.
Just to kick things off, I will share one of my own favorite summer memories:
Sitting around a campfire in a tree clearing with my college pals, and looking up to see the lightning bugs in the trees overhead compliment the twinkling stars visible between the branches.
Ahhh . . . lovely!
Enjoy your trip down memory lane, share it here, and possibly win free concert tickets, courtesy of moi.
PS – If you enjoy country music and you don’t win the free pair of tickets, please, please, please: buy some tickets from me! I have
18 14 to sell! And if you buy them in advance you save $5 a ticket!
CONGRATULATIONS TO DAN RAMSEY, WHOSE NAME WAS SELECTED AT RANDOM TO WIN THE JIMMY FORTUNE TICKETS!!!
