Trace Adkins performs, raises money for Winchester Education Foundation

Virginia

A country music superstar performed Wednesday night for the Patsy Cline Classic IX, which benefits the Winchester Education Foundation.

Trace Adkins rocked it out at the Patsy Cline Theatre at John Handley High School.

Adkins follows a long line of famous artists who have performed at prior patsy cline classics, including Willie Nelson, the Beach Boys, and Vince Gill.

Proceeds from the concert will go to the Winchester Education Foundation, which funds many programs for Winchester Public Schools.

They expected to make $20,000 from the concert.

“I certainly hope that everyone out there understand the significance of public education adn the need to support public education now more than ever. With the school violence challenges, we need to step up and support our young people,” said Russ Putts, Executive Director, Winchester Education Foundation.


The education foundation also announced a $1M donation from the Emily and Grace Shihadeh family for the Career and Technical Education Center.
