Amy Grant and Vince Gill in concert

ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 24, 2020 — Husband and wife singer-songwriters Amy Grant and Vince Gill will headline a drive-in concert in Central Florida to benefit AdventHealth’s COVID-19 research efforts.

They will perform Dec. 6 on the property of Manheim Orlando’s auto auction in Ocoee. All proceeds from the event will go to the AdventHealth Foundation Central Florida and will be used to help fund research and treatment of COVID-19.

More than 400 parking spaces will be available to view the outdoor, socially distanced concert and those in attendance will be asked to remain in their vehicles and wear masks. Tickets start at $500 per space and include a delivered holiday meal for four. Other sponsorship packages are available.

“We are working very hard at developing a vaccine and new treatments for COVID-19,” said Dr. Steven Smith, chief scientific officer of the AdventHealth Research Institute, which has over 500 clinical trials in progress. “We’re learning new things about this virus all the time and only through continued research and community support can we continue to improve treatments and work toward returning society to normal.”

Funds raised from this event allow AdventHealth to expand and provide the best treatments to critically ill patients, offer preventative therapies, and develop protocols and analyses that keep AdventHealth on the cutting-edge of COVID-19 research. Additionally, gifts can provide support to the area of care closest to your heart as we honor clinicians, physicians and front-line staff during this pandemic.
