Baton Rouge, La — L’Auberge Baton Rouge will host a private concert to benefit Our Lady of the Lake’s Children’s Hospital.

Darius Rucker will perform at the private benefit concert on October 11. VIP packages, which include four event tickets giving you access to the VIP area in front of the stage, all-inclusive beverage service and a private reception prior to the event are available for $1,500.

“We’re thrilled that our assets can be used to benefit a worthy cause,” Mickey Parenton, Vice President and General Manager, said. “This donation will not only benefit residents in the Baton Rouge area, but the entire state as Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital is one of the only facilities specializing in pediatrics in Louisiana. We are proud to support the Lake and attendees will experience the type of exciting entertainment the L’Auberge brand is known for while contributing to a truly worthy cause in our community.”
Rucker will perform to a sold out crowd on October 12, the night following the benefit. The public show will take place on “The Lawn,” L’Auberge Baton Rouge’s outdoor festival grounds that seat more than 3,500 people.
