A First in the Groupâ€™s 22 Year History
Â DOUGLASVILLE, GA, January 5, 2016 â€“ Dove Award Winning artist Brian Free & Assurance (BFA) will host their very first Unashamed Fan Retreat to be held October 14-16, 2016. Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina at LifeWayâ€™s Ridgecrest Conference Center, BFA will spend three days with a limited number of fans providing an exclusive weekend with the group.
The campus at Ridgecrest encompasses 1,300 acres and is conveniently located just east of Asheville, North Carolina, less than a dayâ€™s drive from over 15 states. Ridgecrest Account Manager Annette Frisby states, “Ridgecrest is delighted to have Brian Free & Assurance as part of our fall calendar! They will bring an excitement to this Spirit-filled place in the Blue Ridge mountains!”
Unlike a homecoming or three day event with multiple artists, the Unashamed Fan Retreat will solely feature Brian Free and Assurance with unique day and night time activities. A special feature during concert times will be a live band, with Brianâ€™s oldest son, Ricky, playing drums. Brian shares, â€œWhen we were planning this retreat, we didnâ€™t want an event that people would come to and just be sung at â€“ yes, we are going to sing â€“ but more importantly, we want to interact and spend time with our fans.â€
VIP Packages go on sale today. For information about price, location and activities during the fan retreat visit the website at: http://www.BFAfanretreat.com Â Reservations can be made Monday through Friday from 9:00 am â€“ 4:00 PM EST by calling Ridgecrest directly at 1-800-588-7222.
