This September, ‘The Shadowboxers,’ will help raise money for Acres of Love in support of orphans who are battling HIV in South Africa.
Park City, Utah – This year’s Acres of Love event features the Atlanta-based, up-and-coming indie-pop trio ‘The Shadowboxers,’ produced by Justin Timberlake. The group will be performing live at a private, spacious Park City estate – and proceeds from the outdoor concert will benefit orphans in South Africa through Acres of Love, a non-profit organization that provides long-term care for abandoned children, most of who are infected with HIV. Tickets are available now with a donation for the September 5th event.
A group of Park City women started an Acres of Love chapter several years ago to raise money to fund a home for orphans suffering from HIV. Each of their fundraising events has centered around impressive and intimate live concerts. This year, planners anticipate will be the best.
“We are thrilled to bring The Shadowboxers to Park City,” says Park City Acres of Love founder, Melissa Fischer. “We want people to have an amazing time, while being part of the solution to the devastating effects AIDS has had in South Africa,” she says. Fischer explains the children the foundation supports through the Park City chapter have truly become an extension of the group’s family.

Best known for her recent acknowledgement as a Top 30 contender in American Idol Season XIII. Won Best Showcase Award for music video “One and Only” at the 2014 Miner’s Film Festival.
