For The Sender Holiday Show Returns with Acclaimed Artists

| December 4, 2019 | 0 Comments

For The Sender is returning home to the historic La Paloma Theater, located at 471 South Coast Highway 101 in Encinitas, California, for its annual Holiday Show at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, December 14. Proceeds from the Holiday Show will directly benefit Team RWB’s Surf Camp for Veterans. As a special holiday offering, For The Sender will be accepting personal letters from attendees, turning those stories into songs, and performing them live at the show.

The For The Sender event, album, and book series features Grammy-winning, platinum-selling artists presenting powerful songs and stories of love, loss, redemption and hope, all inspired by real-life letters. Singer-songwriter and author of the popular “For The Sender” book and album series, Alex Woodard will be the host for the evening. The holiday concert will include the original For The Sender family, as well as the voices of Nickel Creek, Switchfoot, legendary songwriter Jack Tempchin (“Peaceful Easy Feeling” and other Eagles hits), Molly Jenson, and local stalwarts Nena Anderson and Graham Nancarrow. Special guests will be announced as the show approaches.

“We’re excited to bring the Holiday Show back home to La Paloma,” said Alex Woodard, For the Sender’s founder. “The first For The Sender show sold out two performances at La Paloma eight winters ago, signaling the first steps of a storybook journey that has seen the project evolve and change lives from California to Haiti.”

Proceeds from the project are donated to causes chosen by the letter-senders, including Team RWB, North County’s Shelter to Soldier, and StandUp for Kids.
