  • Runner-up for “The Voice”, 2018 Season, Chris Kroeze to perform in Great Falls to Benefit Great Falls Clinic Legacy Foundation Housing Project

    The Great Falls Clinic Legacy Foundation is excited to announce singer and songwriter Chris Kroeze has joined together to bring a memorable evening of award-winning original songs to Great Falls, Montana on Thursday, October 24, 2019. Chris Kroeze, runner-up for The Voice, Season 15, has personally selected the Legacy Foundation to benefit from this exclusive live-concert located in the new University of Providence Event Center in Great Falls, Montana. The event will be limited to 325 people to offer a personal touch and exclusive experience. The event will feature a 3-course meal, live and silent auction items, and live entertainment. A no-host bar also will be available.

    All proceeds raised will benefit the Great Falls Clinic Legacy Foundation’s cancer patient housing project, the Harold & Carmen Poulsen Legacy Housing. Every day at the Great Falls Clinic, we see the pressing need for patient housing for our out-of-town patients and their families. We provide medical care to more than 250,000 patients each year, including children, and more than four in ten of these patients travel from outside our community. The last thing patients should have to worry about is where they will stay while undergoing treatment.

    That is the Foundation’s purpose. We want to provide free temporary housing for patients and their families who are struggling at the most difficult time in their lives. These patients often have very few options when traveling this distance for health care. They either have to absorb hotel costs or travel back home only to return again the next day for services, incurring debt to receive the care they desperately need.

    We’re pleased to report that our campaign has raised over $1.73 million of the $2.6 million we need to build the new 12-unit patient housing facility to help meet the needs of our out-of-town patients. But to raise the remainder of our goal, we need your help.

    Every penny of your donation will go to help patients traveling to Great Falls. Your gift will bring hope and healing to adults and children faced with cancer, emergencies, and other urgent illnesses. Please join us by making a meaningful, tax-deductible gift to support our project to provide free temporary housing to patients traveling to Great Falls. We are so very grateful for your support.

    About the Entertainment: CHRIS KROEZE

    Singer and Songwriter, Chris Kroeze

    Singer and songwriter Chris Kroeze connects with both the hearts and minds of audiences across various generations through his genuine country soul and his unique and alluring vocal delivery as he performs more than 200 shows per year. Kroeze performs all across the U.S. and internationally, including multiple tours overseas each year in support of our U.S. Armed Forces.

    Early in life, struggling to focus and control an “excessive” amount of energy, Kroeze’s father gave him a guitar for his sixth birthday. It was that day that his musical journey started as he seemed to connect deeply to something special, and zero his attention and energy into his music. From the first time he stepped on stage at his sixth grade talent show, he was hooked. His obsession with music took him from the stage at his Middle School talent show to audiences of tens of thousands and Kroeze’s career has continued to escalate year after year. Along with headlining the majority of his shows, he has also had the privilege of performing with and also sharing the stage with music superstars like Montgomery Gentry, The Doobie Brothers, Travis Tritt, Blake Shelton, Joe Nichols, The Lost Trailers, Chris Kagle, Josh Thompson, and many others.

    With overwhelming support of his home town of Barron, Wisconsin, Kroeze raised money to head to Nashville in 2014 and recorded his first single “Four Letter Words” at the famous Station West Recording Studio. That first single went on to receive heavy radio play throughout the Midwest and open numerous doors for the young musician.

    A call from the producers of NBC’s Emmy Award Winning television show, The Voice, catapulted Kroeze onto the national stage this year. Kroeze’s combination of vocal and guitar skills, along with his humility and small town country boy nature, captured the hearts of millions of fans from coast to coast. With guidance from his coach and mentor Blake Shelton, he continued to wow audiences week after week. “His potential is limitless” said Maroon 5’s Adam Levine.
