An August concert by the Temptations Revue will kick off the fundraising campaign to revitalize Blankenship Field and Jack Armstrong Stadium into a world-class facility, organizers said.
The Aug. 9 concert will be in the Oak Ridge High School Auditorium. It’s sponsored by the Oak Ridge Quarterback Club.
The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 9, and tickets must be purchased online. They went on sale to the public on Thursday.
All proceeds will be directed to the revitalization effort to revamp Blankenship Field/Jack Armstrong Stadium.
Organizers are promoting the show through local media. Information on ticket sales is available at TemptationsRevueORHS.eventbrite.com.
“This may be the most exciting thing that has ever happened in Oak Ridge since the developing of the atomic bomb in 1943,” organizers said.
