Rodger Dinwiddie, STARS chief executive officer, said they are thrilled Gill, who has been such an amazing friend to the nonprofit agency, is joined this year by Rob Bironas and Chad Warrix as the event patron co-chairs. Previously, Gill has surprised event patrons with guest artists like Amy Grant, Dierks Bentley, Alison Krauss, The Del McCoury Band, Rodney Crowell, Dan Tyminski, Jenny Gill and Richard Marx.

“This year, STARS is blending two of its major fundraising efforts into one extraordinary evening. The 15 year-old Chair-ish The Kids, which benefitted the Kids on the Block program, merging with the Vince Gill benefit concert pulls together these remarkable events into one night of incredible art and world-class music,” Dinwiddie said.

with an art auction and cocktail reception at 6:00 p.m. in the Conservatory of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum followed by a 9:00 p.m. concert in the Ford Theatre.  With limited seating, exclusive patron tickets are available for $275.00 which includes premium concert seating and a post-concert meet and greet with Vince Gill.  Individual
