Frenzel Properties Holds Benefit Concert for A Child’s Place on May 11

Country and bluegrass band, Simpler Times, will play at Andrew Blair’s to raise money and awareness for Charlotte nonprofit helping homeless children.

 

CHARLOTTE, NC - - Frenzel Properties, a boutique residential real estate firm serving the greater Charlotte area, is holding a benefit concert with country and bluegrass band Simpler Times to support A Child’s Place, a local nonprofit that is helping to erase the impact of homelessness on children and their education.  The concert will be held at Andrew Blair’s (1600 Montford Drive, Charlotte, NC  28209) on Friday, May 11 from 7:30 – 10:00 p.m.  The concert is $10 per person with 100 percent of the admission going to A Child’s Place’s My Place summer day camp program for rising first through fifth grade students.  In addition to financial support, Frenzel Properties will also be collecting new towels, flip flops and goggles for the 150 campers’ swim lessons.   

 

Frenzel Properties has partnered with A Child’s Place for the past two years and donates a portion of all home sale commissions to help the nonprofit, currently helping over 3,200 homeless children in the Charlotte area.  The firm also sponsors a homeless family at Christmas through A Child’s Place.  

 

“A Child’s Place does wonderful, heartwarming work in our community providing stability for kids and their families that don’t have a home,” said Kelly Frenzel, owner and broker for Frenzel Properties.  “Sadly, in our current economy, the number of homeless families has increased, creating an even greater need for help.  Our firm wants to make a positive impact not only in our clients’ lives, but in the community as a whole and we are blessed to help support A Child’s Place’s My Place summer day camp program, which provides homeless children with a safe, fun and educational environment for the summer.” 

 

About A Child’s Place’s My Place Summer Day Camp

A Child’s Place’s (ACP) My Place summer day camp is an eight week opportunity for rising first through fifth grade students. When the academic year comes to a close, homeless children lose the structure and food school provides. My Place summer day camp provides these students with a safe, fun and educational environment for the summer. My Place allows these children to take a break from the familial and situational hardships they must deal with on a daily basis to be children, enjoy the summer, and understand the importance of academic success.  For more information, visit www.AChildsPlace.org.
