It’s not too late to attend a special event this Thursday night at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, when six-time Grammy Award winner Amy Grant will perform with other celebrity musicians at the hotel’s “Artists for Others,” a benefit for Agape International Missions (AIM).

“Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa is proud to present Amy Grant and this impressive lineup of talent as we help to raise funds for AIM, which rescues children from sex trafficking,” reported Eva Hill, president of Britannia Pacific Properties, which owns the AAA Five-Diamond Award property, part of Preferred Hotels and Resorts. 

The benefit will be the first in a series of charitable events the resort will host, which indicates the hotel’s “makeover” and name change as it underwent its conscious uncoupling from the Ritz points to more than just a pretty face.

After all, AIM’s programs aren’t for the faint of heart; child sex trafficking is as tough as it gets. The organization describes its mission as “to restore victims and transform communities, making a holistic and successful strategy in the ground war on child sex-trafficking. We are committed to prevent, rescue, restore and reintegrate.”  (More information on AIM is available at 916/784-2800.)

And if you want to support this event (kudos to Eau Resort for doing this!), tickets are $259 each $2,000 for a VIP table. It starts at 7 p.m. Other performers include Kip Winger, Buddy Hyatt and Celica Westbrook, as well as T.G. Sheppard, Danny Gokey and Kelly Lang.  “Artists for Others” will also feature Lisa Cohen of the CNN Freedom Project, Bridget and Don Brewster of AIM, Ken Peterson of 3Strands, an appearance by Barry Gibb and a performance by visual artist David Garibaldi.
