“Advance ticket sales are off to a great start” said Owen Palm, CEO of 21st Century Equipment. Palm went on to say “I’m told the Five Rocks Amphitheater has never sold out. Wouldn’t it be great to make this benefit concert a first for this great venue. I’m asking that other ag and non-ag related businesses in the area consider the need and step up and purchase blocks of tickets for their customers and employees.
“The relationships we develop with the Farmers & Ranchers that we depend on runs much deeper than the transaction. They are our customers, our neighbors, our friends, our partners, and they even feel like family at times”, says Terry Gass, VP of Marketing/District Manager of 21st Century Equipment. “We go where the Farmers & Ranchers go, financially and emotionally. We are honored that we can do something positive and give something back to them in their time of need.”
Tickets are $50 for the front reserved seating, $35 for the next level reserved seating, and $25 for general admission. Tickets are available at 21stCenturyEquipment.com, KNEB.com, and KGOSKERM.com. Advertising support for this event has been graciously provided by KNEB, KERM, KGOS, Star Herald, Torrington Telegram, and 21st Century Equipment.
