Alan Jackson will play a special show for the small town of Mineral, VA – population 490 – on Sunday, May 20 at 8 pm in the parking lot of Louisa County High School. Smithfield Presents “Alan Jackson Music For Mineral” will benefit the Louisa Education Foundation (LEF) and its rebuilding efforts.
Fans across the country had two months last fall to vote for which city would receive a concert from Jackson. The little town of Mineral amassed over 31,000 votes and won the opportunity to host the concert. Mineral continues to repair and rebuild after a rare East Coast earthquake that hit on August 23, 2011, causing widespread damage in the region.
Funds raised for the LEF will be used to assist the county public schools, including replacement of Louisa County High School’s extensively-used auditorium. The Louisa County High School is currently condemned.

In addition to the concert, The Alan Jackson Charity Golf Classic will be held at The Royal Virginian Golf Course on the morning of Saturday, May 19. For details on registering as a player or team, please visit www.theroyalvirginian.com/Tournaments.html. All proceeds from the tournament will help fund LEF.
