KENNY ROGERS SET TO VISIT KENNY ROGERS CHILDREN'S CENTER AND HOST BENEFIT CONCERT ON JUNE 1st

KennyRogers 2014 byPiper FergusonKENNY ROGERS CHILDREN'S CENTER SUPPORTS CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS FOR CLOSE TO 40 YEARS

SIKESTON, MO. (May 27, 2014) – Not very many performers can say they've been in the “business” for over 50 years. Not many can say they've played an instrumental role in the success of an organization that solely exists for the purpose of helping children with special needs. Not many can say they've returned five times throughout the years to hold concerts and continue to raise money for that organization. And certainly not many can say they've held an interest in that same organization for close to 40 years! But yes, Kenny Rogers has certainly earned his name on the building of that very organization…The Kenny Rogers Children’s Center in Sikeston, Missouri.

“It’s scary to think about where the Center would be today if it weren't for Kenny Rogers. Or rather, where the Center would NOT be today”, states Michelle Fayette, Executive Director of the Center. “The current building we are in today was made possible through Kenny’s efforts, the expansions, new equipment, updated equipment, and so much more, all are because he has cared enough throughout the years to continue his efforts in furthering our mission. You definitely can't make old friends like that! Thousands of children have come through these doors and have received life-changing therapies all because of him,” she adds. The Center covers numerous counties in Southeast Missouri and provides therapy to approximately 450 children on a monthly basis.”
