Lake Lanier Islands Resort® Teams Up with 104.7 The Fish to Host First “Islands Give Back” Concert

Concert Series Debut Marks Grand Opening of Peachtree Pointe Amphitheater, Featuring Performances by Sanctus Real, The Museum and the Rhett Walker Band

Buford, GA, June 03, 2012 --( Lake Lanier Islands Resort has teamed up with 104.7 The Fish to host their first “Islands Give Back” Concert on Saturday, June 9, 2012. This community-centered event marks the grand opening of the Island’s newly renovated Peachtree Point Amphitheater, featuring performances by popular Christian rock bands Sanctus Real, The Museum, and the Rhett Walker Band. A portion from every ticket purchased will go to support local food ministry, “His Harvest House”.

Concert attendees will also have a unique opportunity to “give back” and as thanks, each person who brings a non-perishable food item to the concert will receive a free ticket to LanierWorld (one per person) – good for one admission to Lake Lanier Islands’ LanierWorld, a water adventure and boardwalk entertainment district, on Fish Thursdays throughout the 2012 season.

“At Lake Lanier Islands, we’re big supporters of the concept of giving back to our community,” explains Virgil Williams, Chairman of Islands Management Company. “That’s why we place such an emphasis on being a valued part of events like Susan G. Komen’s 3-day for the Cure and Phil Neikro’s Fins & Skins Celebrity Pro-Am to support wounded warriors through Operation One Voice. We’re very excited to kick off this new concert series with our friends at The Fish to help stock the shelves at ‘His Harvest House’ while giving local families an opportunity to enjoy a day of good old fashioned fun at LanierWorld.”

The doors of the stunning lakeside Peachtree Point Amphitheater open at 7:00 p.m. for a night filled with lakeside breezes, great music, fellowship, and fun. Grammy Award nominated Sanctus Real takes the stage at 8:00 p.m. Tickets for the first “Islands Give Back Concert” are available for purchase through at $12 for General Admission seating on the lawn, $15 for V.I.P.
