As part of the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, MI, Jonas Brothers will play a special concert at Joe Louis Arena on January 18 to help raise funds for the annual Charity Preview that takes places at Detroit’s Cobo Center on January 16 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Tickets for Charity Preview are $400 ($390 is tax deductible). For every Charity Preview ticket purchased, patrons will receive one free ticket to see Jonas Brothers live in concert. There are a limited number of Charity Preview tickets that are tied to the Jonas Brothers concert and tickets must be purchased between December 23 and January 5. Charity Preview ticket holders who purchased prior to December 23 will be contacted and given the option for Jonas Brothers tickets as well.
Since its inception in 1976, Charity Preview has raised over $77 million for children’s charities in metro Detroit — over $32 million of which was raised in the last five years alone. Medical treatment, clothing and support services for local kids in need all are made possible through the purchase of Charity Preview tickets. The annual event has delivered more than $6 million to children’s charities in Southeastern Michigan.
Jonas Brothers join a growing list of celebrities that have attended Charity Preview in years past to help raise funds for children in need. Previous attendees include Celine Dion, Aretha Franklin, Kid Rock, Kevin Bacon and Jay Leno.
“We couldn’t be more pleased that an act as large as the Jonas Brothers have offered their support to Charity Preview,” said Joe Serra, senior co-chair of the 2009 NAIAS, in a statement. “Not only will attendees be supporting local children’s charities in this time of dire need, but they will be able to provide the kids in their life with a ticket to the hottest concert in town.”
