World Vision unveils “World Vision’s Summerfest ’09,” their first-ever summer concert series featuring pop-rock band Building 429, 33Miles, Lanae Hale, and new act Kimber Rising. The Summerfest will visit 12 to 15 cities and kicks off this week. World Vision hopes to have more than 800 child sponsorships by the end of the tour.
The tour dates lead up to Building 429’s World Vision mission trip to Uganda this July where the band will be performing to approximately 30,000 people in Rwanda with Andrew Palau of the Luis Palau Association. The band will continue their tour with World Vision in August for 15 dates across Canada.
