Mandrell Sisters Reunite to Help Africa
Country Music Hall of Famer Barbara Mandrell will reunite with her singing siblings for a rare appearance as the Mandrell Sisters on Thursday, September 2 at the Nashville Palace. Barbara, Louise and Irlene (pictured together left in 1981) will come together in support of S.E.E.K. (Suba Environmental Education of Kenya), to help raise funds for those in need in that African nation. The fundraiser was organized by Barbara's daughter, Jaime Dudney.
The mission of S.E.E.K. is to provide opportunities for the people of Kenya by addressing urgent issues of poverty, hunger and disease in a Biblical and environmentally literate way, to bring about transformation of their communities.
Attendees will have opportunity to mingle with the Mandrells, who will sign photos and autographs for attendees. GAC's Nan Kelley will host the event, with musical performances by Mike Farris and the Roseland Rhythm Revue and Christy Sutherland.
Ticket prices are $30 (the amount S.E.E.K. estimates it would take to provide food, clothing and protection for a Kenyan child with HIV) and are available by calling (615) 485-8300. The event begins at 6:30 P.M. (ET) at the Nashville Palace, which is located at 2611 McGavock Pike, just across the street from the Opryland Hotel.
