"HIGH POINT, NC ­- Two of the top Mid-Atlantic bands will entertain in High Point on Friday, Sept. 9 to benefit children in need of adoption and foster care services.

Jim Quick and Coastline, 14-time recipients of the coveted CAMMY Entertainer of the Year Award, and Sleeping Booty, a favored funk, rock, R&B, and hip-hop dance band, will headline the 8th annual Ilderton's High Point Beach Music Blast.

Proceeds from the Beach Music Blast go to Children's Home Society of North Carolina, founded in 1902 with the mission to promote the right of every child to a permanent, safe, and loving family. Last year CHS served more than 20,000 children and families who needed assistance in North Carolina.

"I was adopted myself, so this event holds a special place in my heart," said Dana Bett, lead singer of Sleeping Booty. "We love playing for this great cause and raising awareness of Children's Home Society of North Carolina. It will be a blast!"

Gates open Friday at 5:30 p.m. at Mendenhall Transportation Terminal in downtown High Point. Stage activities begin at 6 PM and continue until 11 PM. Free parking is available with food trucks providing convenient menu options for the entire family. Bring lawn chairs and blankets - but leave the coolers and pets at home.

Advance tickets are available online through Sept 8 at $15 each and tickets at the gate will be $20. There is no admission charge for children under 12. Tickets are available online here.

"Every dollar we receive supports adoption, foster care, family education, family preservation, family finding, and teen pregnancy prevention programs," said Brian Maness, President and CEO of Children's Home Society NC.

The High Point Beach Music Blast also celebrates the 90th (yes, ninetieth!) anniversary of presenting sponsor Ilderton Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep-Ram.

"We thank the community and many sponsors for making a difference," said Maness."
