From a press release:

The F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts in Wilkes-Barre and country music star Kacey Musgraves have joined forces with the Salvation Army to plant a special holiday Angel Tree inside of the theater’s box office lobby.

Those interested in participating can stop by the Kirby Center’s box office lobby (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre) now through Friday, Dec. 2 during regular business hours. The gift-givers can select a child from the tree and/or donate $20 to the Salvation Army. Those who do so will be in the running for two tickets and a meet and greet to Musgraves’ Friday, Dec. 9 performance at the Kirby Center.

The Angel Tree is a unique program that started in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1979. It involves the community in a direct way, allowing them to become personally involved by sharing with those less fortunate in their community. The program provides gifts of new clothing and toys to thousands of children who otherwise might not have anything for Christmas.

Children who are recipients of Angel Tree gifts are from families who have applied for Christmas assistance through the Social Services program of the Salvation Army.

Participants will need to register their gift at the box office to be eligible for the tickets and meet and greet passes. No purchase is necessary.

Two-time Grammy Award-winner Kacey Musgraves will be ringing in this holiday season by launching her very first Christmas headlining tour, “A Very Kacey Christmas Tour,” which stops at the Kirby Center on Dec. 9 at 8 p.m.

The concert will feature Kacey showcasing songs off her new debut Christmas album, “A Very Kacey Christmas.”

“I’m so excited to tour my first Christmas album and to get festive with this music! It was such a blast to make,” said Musgraves. “I’m making sure these are going to be some very magical nights!”
