NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WHAS11)- One week after choosing Henryville High School as the winner of the Own The Night Prom Contest, Lady Antebellum is releasing details for their stop in the area.
The Grammy winning trio is inviting Henryville High School’s juniors and seniors to the KFC YUM! Center for a private prom event on May 16.
That event will be followed by a concert that will be open to the public called Rebuilding Henryville.
All proceeds raised from the concert will remain local through the New Hope/Indiana Bankers Association to benefit the Disaster Relief Fund.
"The whole community, especially the students, is excited about Lady Antebellum coming and performing for Henryville,” said Superintendent of the West Clark Community Schools Monty Schneider. “They missed so much with the school being destroyed that things like this help them feel whole again. They will be talking about the tornadoes for the rest of their lives, but this event will give them something positive to reflect on about that time. It's going to be a special moment for the entire community.”
"Helping rebuild this community is our biggest priority right now," said Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott. "We were so moved by the stories from Henryville High School, but also from the students at their rival schools who raised their hands and said they wanted to help. There has been so much national media attention and so many sponsors and volunteers are stepping forward to help. It's going to be an amazing day!”
Lipton tea will also be helping sponsor the event.
Fans unable to attend the concert are encouraged to make a donation. Click here for more information.
