2015 Lone Star Legacy Gala to celebrate the Mesquite ISD Education Foundation’s 10th year. Lifehouse to be headline concert act.

MESQUITE, TEXAS (January, 2015) The ninth annual Lone Star Legacy Gala will be a special one for the Mesquite ISD Education Foundation. This year’s event is a celebration of the Education Foundation’s 10th Anniversary of raising funds for innovative educational programs in Mesquite ISD. The event will be held on March 21, 2015, at Mesquite Arena and will feature the popular rock band Lifehouse as the headline concert act.

Lifehouse, led by lead singer Jason Wade, splashed onto the music scene in 2001 with the release of their hit song “Hanging by a Moment”, reaching #1 on the Billboard Modern Rock Chart and winning the Billboard Music Awards Hot 100 Single of the Year. Other Lifehouse hits include “You and Me”, “Between the Raindrops”, “Halfway Gone”, “Broken”, “Everything” among many others. Lifehouse will release their seventh studio album titled, Seven, in early 2015. To date Lifehouse has sold over 15 million albums and singles worldwide.

Tim Halperin, an outstanding musician who burst onto the national scene as a contestant on Season 10 of American Idol, will provide the opening entertainment. While on American Idol, Tim emerged as one of the top 12 males and earned a spot on the live broadcast. He will perform current cover songs and some of his soulful original songs that will display why he is one of the brightest singer/songwriters in the United States.

“The Education Foundation is grateful for the many individuals and businesses that support the Lone Star Legacy Gala each year,” said Don Riggs, gala chair and board member of the Mesquite ISD Education Foundation. “Since 2007, gala proceeds have exceeded $500,000. These dollars have helped fund hundreds of innovative education programs in Mesquite ISD that fall outside of the state budget. This success would not be possible without tremendous support from our table sponsors, ticket buyers, auction participants and volunteers.”

The Lone Star Legacy Gala will be held at Mesquite Arena on March 21, 2015. In addition to a night of great music, the event will feature a live auction as well as a two-week on-line auction. Table Sponsorships are being sold on the arena floor beginning at $1,000 for a table of eight people. In addition, concert tickets will be sold through Ticketmaster and the Mesquite Arena Box Office beginning in late January.
