Awakening Foundation, powered by Awakening Events, announces that K-LOVE Presents Live At Red Rocks, held last week at the legendary Denver-based amphitheater, was completely sold out in advance and attracted 17,488 people in a two-night capacity. With performances on August 4 and 5, Live At Red Rocks featured the musical talents of artists such as TobyMac, Tauren Wells, Danny Gokey, Matthew West, Jordan Feliz, Mac Powell, Cory Asbury, Katy Nichole, and Riley Clemmons.

Additionally, Awakening Foundation, along with its partners K-LOVE Radio, ChildFund, and Altura HealthShare, continues to build on its history of giving back. $20,000 was donated locally through the Salvation Army to address food insecurity in Colorado.

“It was a privilege and honor for K-LOVE to join Awakening Foundation for these amazing nights at Red Rocks,” K-LOVE and Air1’s Chief Partnership Officer David Pierce shares. “We think it’s the best outdoor concert experience and it never disappoints!”

On Friday, August 5, WCQR/Johnson City hosted their first ever “Back to School Bash” community event at Paradise Acres Family Farm Park in Johnson City, TN. With right around 400 participants, it was a day and evening filled with fun, putt-putt, laser tag, games, sunflowers, fellowship and lots of cotton candy and ice cream!

Positive Alternative Radio VP Creative Services Jerry Grimes says, “The ticketed event sold out. The evening ending with glow in the dark putt-putt and the movie “Encanto.” Thank you to CrossPath Church, Discovery Church, and Crossroads Christian Church for setting up tents with crafts and games. And thank you to our sponsors Appalachian Community Federal Credit Union, The Johnson City Eye Clinic and Olde Towne.”
