Over the course of his music career Mickey Gilley has climbed to the top of the charts 17 times, and the compassionate country crooner holds a top spot in the hearts of animal lovers as well for his dogged devotion to paws causes.
Fans who have sung the praises of the Urban Cowboy legend in the past for his fundraising efforts with the Pasadena Animal Shelter, Taney County Animal Shelter, The Shepherd of the Hills Humane Society, the Pet Assistance Welfare Society and Pets and People Alliance can tap their feet to the beat of the singer’s hits this spring at a concert that will be instrumental in helping homeless dogs and cats at 5 A’s– the Alton Area Animal Aid Association.
A no-kill shelter, 5 A’s has saved the lives of more than 20,000 companion animals since its founding in 1956.
Presented by Ron Young’s Nashville Productions, the evening will include opening act the “Real Street Band”.
When: April 12, 2014, starting at 7 p.m.
Where: Hatheway Hall at the Lewis & Clark Community College in Godfrey, Illinois
