Sedona AZ (September 12, 2012) – Eric Williams is gonna Rock This Town on September 20th, 2012 at Studio Live in Sedona. From the Stray Cats to Sinatra, ZZ Top to Ray Charles, Williams shares a night of music, dance and fun. Tickets are $15.00 in advance and $20.00 the day of the performance, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of Sedona (HSS).
This is not the first time Eric has performed on the Equinox to benefit HSS.”The organization does so much for the animals and the community. They have low cost spay and neuter clinics to help stop pet overpopulation, they offer a low cost vaccination clinic, Kids & Kritters camp that teaches respect for all animals to children and of course their incredible adoption programs. I have been to the shelter and it is a fun place, the dogs are happy and playing in the dog park and the cats are roaming in these big rooms enjoying fresh air and sunshine.” notes Eric.
The Humane Society of Sedona will be on site the night of the concert for some pre-event fun. Come early and meet some of the dogs available for adoption or pick up a doggy grab bag for your pups at home. Staff and volunteers will be on hand to talk about the many ways to get involved with HSS including adopting, volunteering and donating.
“We are looking forward to another sellout crowd on the 20th.” Notes Taryn Brean, Marketing and Development for Studio Live. “The more tickets we sell the more animals we get to help. It is definitely a “feel good” event. Eric’s music really gets the audience going; singing, moving to the groove and having a great time. The fact that part of the proceeds from their tickets goes to the Humane Society just adds to the experience.”
