Chris Kyle Frog Foundation (CKFF) announces the release of a limited number of individual tickets and event sponsorships for the Second Annual Chris Kyle Birthday Bash. The event is scheduled for Saturday, April 29, 2017, at the iconic Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth, and will feature performances by country music star Easton Corbin, Coffey Anderson and Scott Brown from Scooter Brown Band.
This event honors the life of Chris Kyle – Navy SEAL and author of the acclaimed memoir, American Sniper – and serves as the primary fundraising event to further the Foundation’s mission to Honor God, Country, and Families Who Serve by providing experiences that support military, veteran, and first responder marriages and families.
The evening will be hosted by three-time Dallas Cowboy Super Bowl champion, Jay Novacek, with opening remarks given by Marine combat veteran and patriot, Tank Machine. Chris’s wife and Foundation Executive Director, Taya Kyle, will also address the crowd. A select number of local military and first responder couples will be attending the event as part of the Foundation’s Date Night Out and Revitalization Retreat programs as gratitude for their service and sacrifice.
“The Chris Kyle Birthday Bash is all about honoring the things that Chris loved – rodeo, country music, food, beer, whiskey, and Texas,” said Taya. “We have done our best to focus it on the three things that drove him through the most difficult times – God, Country and Family. This event will go a long way towards allowing the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation to provide experiences to couples who serve and that will come through the ticket sales, sponsorships and auction items.”
Staying true to Chris’s spirit, guests are encouraged to arrive in relaxed attire, “Chris Kyle Style”, in boots and jeans. The evening’s food and beverages have also been inspired by the late Navy SEAL.
In addition to the signature celebrity and musical guests, the night will feature an on-site rodeo saluting Kyle’s background as a Cowboy, opportunities to bid on several exclusive items and travel packages during a live and silent auction, heartfelt tributes from CKFF program recipients, and a performance of “Valor” a song co-written by Chris Kyle and Scott Brown from Scooter Brown Band.
Taya is thrilled about the line-up of entertainment on the night.
“Oh, that is going to be real cool. Easton Corbin loves America and is passionate for the cause of the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation. He is such a great performer live, and there is no one more passionate about America than Tank Machine. To have my good friend Jay Novacek rally the troops is amazing. You can’t get any more Texas than Jay, and it will be amazing to hear Scott perform ‘Valor’ and to have Coffey Anderson inspire us with his rendition of the National Anthem,” she says.
“We want it to be a fun, relaxed event remembering a very special person. We want everyone to kick their feet up and have some fun and enjoy some real Texas hospitality while also doing something positive to help our military and first responder service couples,” Kyle adds.
