Jim Brickman schedules Tower Club concert

Posted online
John Q. Hammons Hotels & Resorts will host a black-tie charity show April 8 featuring concert pianist Jim Brickman at the Tower Club atop Hammons Tower.

The concert, dubbed "An Intimate Evening with Jim Brickman," will benefit Convoy of Hope and the Jim Brickman Scholarship Fund for The Cleveland Institute of Music.

Approximately 250 tickets are available to Tower Club and Highland Springs Country Club members for $100 apiece. Net proceeds from the tickets, after subtracting operating expenses, will benefit the charities.

"We were able to get (Brickman) to come to this because of the causes we've chosen. He also is aware of Convoy of Hope and is very much a supporter of that," said Jeff Anderson, Tower Club general manager.

Anderson noted the concert is an unscheduled show for Grammy-nominated Brickman, who is currently touring nationwide to promote his latest CD, "Home." As the hotel sponsor for Brickman for the second year running, JQH Hotels provides lodging for Brickman and crew in select cities.

The event is the kick-off for the launch of the Tower Club's Give Back to the World initiative, in which a portion of every dollar spent on dining at the Tower Club will be donated to people in need worldwide, Anderson said.

"We're going to be collaborating with our influential members to make a difference," he said. "We want to make this a success."

The Tower Club is currently recruiting Tower Club members to form an oversight committee for the initiative. The committee will determine key causes and appropriate donation percentages.[[In-content Ad]]
