Brad Paisley, Old Dominion Holding Virtual Concert To Benefit the Utica Zoo
Brad Paisley, with a little help from his 'Celebrity' friends, like Old Dominion, Wynonna Judd, and Ashley McBryde, are hosting a concert to benefit the Utica Zoo.
'All Together for Animals,' is a virtual benefit concert with the Utica Zoo and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. Your $30 contribution gets you access to the 1 hour exclusive virtual concert, that will be held on March 31st at 8 pm.
Old Dominion knows how much COVID-19 has impacted AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums around the country and they want to help 'Make it Sweet.'
Due to the pandemic, members have lost nearly a year of revenue. But the facilities still need to feed, care, and provide medical attention for the precious animals – every single day...To help raise immediate funds, we have teamed up with today’s top country artists to produce an incredible, virtual concert fundraising event – exclusively for our zoo and aquarium supporters.
Other country artists who have signed on to perform include Riley Green, Jessie James Decker, Shy Carter, and others.
We're not surprised Brad Paisley is involved. He's been spending his time in quarantine, going on virtual pub crawls and crashing zoom parties, including in central New York.
Benjamin Smith and Marcus Ellis of Rochester, New York went viral after trying to bring unity to their neighborhood. The men set up signs at the end of their driveway - Black or White. Relax and have a beer. So Paisley did just that, on Zoom, even sending them all the beer A.J.s Warehouse had.
A group of teachers in Watertown were surprised when Paisley crashed their Happy Hour zoom party. "If anybody deserves a drink right now, it's teachers," he said.
Paisley chatted with Wegman workers in Dewitt, who were dressing up as superheroes. "I'm so inspired by people like you. What a way to make your customers feel a little bit safer."
Purchase your $30 virtual ticket for All Together for Animals and enjoy a concert from your couch while helping 240 zoos and aquariums belonging to the AZA, including the Utica Zoo. "We need your help to feed, care, and provide medical attention for our precious animals."
