Fort Mill, SC – Looking for a fun, crazy, family friendly night out with friends? Save the night of October 23, for dancing to the tunes of Charity Case on the field of Nation Ford High School Stadium. Not only is it a fun time, it’s for a great cause. 

The Foundation for Fort Mill Schools and Th e Playroom Academy of Music present Education Rocks! a concert featuring Charity Case, the rock band that has opened for international acts such as Bon Jovi, Train, LL Cool J and many others. While setting attendance records everywhere they play, crowd favorite Charity Case is also known for raising over $750,000 for children who are terminally ill and chronically disabled.
“Having a rock concert right here in our own back yard is great,” said Martha Kinard, chairperson of the Foundation for Fort Mill Schools (FFFMS) board of directors. “With recent budget cuts, raising funds for the Fort Mill School District comes at a crucial time. Our goal is to maintain our tradition of academic excellence.”
Kinard says the concert will happen rain or shine. Concert goers can choose stadium seating or bring a blanket (no chairs or coolers). Special local talent will take the stage at 6 p.m. Charity Case performs at 8 p.m.
Charity Case, started in 2001 as a radio “bit” on the syndicated Ace & TJ Show heard locally on Kiss 95.1 (WNKS – FM), is a group of musicians who have dedicated themselves to raising money for Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids.
“The band and crew are a special group of people who donate their time to make music for charity,” said Eddie Z, band member and owner of The Playroom Academy of Music. “We’re really excited to be able to help raise money for both Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids and the Foundation for Fort Mill Schools. Having a child in the Fort Mill school system makes it even more special for me.”
Tickets are $10 in advance or $13 at the gate and can be purchased online at the following websites:
