Concert Charity Event in Windmill Ranch Estates, Weston Florida

Coming up in June Michelle Farber Ross and Lisa Cordero of Ross-Cordero Realty Group- Waterfront Properties & Club Communities, and former NFL player Terry Kirby will be hosting a private concert at a beautiful mansion in Windmill Ranch Estates in Weston, Florida. The concert will be held on June 3, 2010 at 7:30 PM and will be a part of the Storyville Live Freedom Tour and will feature guitarist/song-writer Willy Porter. The mega-mansion that the concert will be held at was built by co-founder and first CEO of Mattress Giant, Richard Nilsen.

The purpose of the concert is to benefit the children of Haiti. Thousands of children have been left orphaned and vulnerable to crime, desperate living conditions and human trafficking due to the 7.0 earthquake that hit Haiti early this year. When the concert producer from Storyville Live extended this idea to Ross and Cordero they accepted the invitation. When Ross and Cordero went on to find a co-host for the event they knew NFL alum Terry Kirby would graciously accept. Several of the students who attend his non-profit Charter School, Touchdowns4Life, are Haitian and still have family living in the devastated area.

“Through my work with the charter school, I always try to give back to today’s youth,” says Kirby. “This is a great opportunity to gain awareness for these practices of human trafficking and slavery, and another way to help those kids who really need a voice.”

The venue for the event is one of the largest homes ever built in Broward County. The mega-mansion is owned by Mattress Giant CEO and co-founder, Richard Nilsen. The home boasts 34,565 square feet, 9 bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, 4 half bathrooms as well as unbelievable amenities such as a 6,000 sq. foot great room with views of the lake and the lagoon pool, a movie theater and a safe room.

“The choice for the location was simple,” says Ross. “This home is perfect for creating a memorable evening for a great cause!”

“We are so thankful to Richard for offering to showcase his estate in such a positive, meaningful way,” says Cordero. “Through this event and future events like it, we hope to shine the light on this inhumane worldwide epidemic and to give a voice to those who are suffering.”

To start off the evening guests will be offered a VIP Tasting and Tour beginning at 6:30 PM, which will feature local cuisine and a tour of the handsome venue. Following the tour guests will be seated to enjoy a private concert beginning at 7:30 PM. All of the profits from the evening’s event will be donated to International Justice Mission (IJM) to aid in the global fight against human trafficking and slavery.

Storyville Live concerts are produced by the Storyville Coffee Company and they together with IJM are passionate about raising awareness and resources to aid in the fight against slavery and human trafficking.

“The only way we are going to end slavery is if justice advocates are in action, not spending 50% of their time fundraising,” says Cordero. “By hosting this event and through the generosity of our guests, we’ll help change the face of IJM’s fund-raising forever and that makes us feel really good about participating.”
