By Brooke Hersh
Valley Forge Casino Resort is kicking off 2013 with several big name acts, including a concert with country star Kellie Pickler, an appearance and performance by the cast of “All My Children” and weekly live music and DJs.
Valley Forge Casino Resort will host nationally known country singer Kellie Pickler at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 9, in the Waterford Ballroom. Pickler, a former American Idol star, is best known for her chart-topping hits “Best Days of Your Life” and “Red High Heels,” and her newest single, “Tough,” from her third album, “100 Proof.”
In support of Pickler’s crusade against cancer, for every ticket sold the resort will donate $2 to two regional cancer charities, Cancer Support Community of Philadelphia and Gilda’s Club South Jersey. In September 2012, Pickler shaved her head to raise awareness about cancer detection after a friend was diagnosed with the disease.
General admission tickets are $40. VIP tickets are $60 and include two complimentary drinks and appetizers. All tickets include free admission to Valley Forge Casino Resort’s premier country venue, Deuces Wild Buckin’ Bull Saloon, on the night of the show. Tickets can be purchased at www.vfcasino.com/EiV.
