Kory And The Fireflies Performance Benefits Charity

Kory And The Fireflies Performance Benefits Charity

This year marks five years that Sioux Falls-based Kory and the Fireflies have performed at the turn of the New Year. Each time offers something new with the group donating money to a different area charity.

"This year, we'll be presenting Children's Home Society with a $10,000 check. So that's kind of our gift out of the show and a good way to start the new year off," Kory Van Sickle said.

In the five years the band has headlined the Kory and the Fireflies Champagne Ball, two things have made the nights memorable for the band: the feeling of giving back to the community and performing in front of their friends and family.

"2014 will actually be 20 years for the Fireflies, which I can't believe, and in large part due to just the community and how great Sioux Falls has been to us, and so it's always fun, of course, to play the home turf," Van Sickle said.

Icon Lounge should be packed Tuesday night. Almost 400 people are expected to walk through the doors to ring in 2014.

Concerts that benefit charities always have a special meaning regardless of who performs, but with Kory and the Fireflies performing, there's an even more impactful feeling.

"For us to be able to be from here and actually recognize something like that that's been around long before we were, it's pretty special and I think that whole vibe, the giving vibe and that feeling just kind of carries over for the whole show for the evening," Van Sickle said.

Your ticket to the concert also puts you in a raffle to win a guitar designed by Van Sickle.
