Festival of Trees Presents An Evening with Collin Raye

DANVILLE, IL.- The OSF Healthcare Foundation, in partnership with the David S. Palmer Arena and Inked Entertainment, is proud to welcome ten time ACM and CMA Male Vocalist of the year nominee, Collin Raye to the Arena for an intimate evening, Friday, November 16, 2018 at 7:30 PM. 

 

The concert will be the finale to this year’s 22nd Annual Festival of Trees; adding to week of special activities this coming November. Raye will be part of an acoustic trio taking the stage that evening and for now a limited number of tickets will be sold.

“ Raye was one of the true hit makers of the 1990’s. Collin still continues to crank out soulful, heartfelt material with the honesty and richness that is signature to his vocals alone. With 24 top ten records, 16 #1 hits, and having been a 10 time male vocalist of the year nominee (5 CMA and 5 ACM), this truly electrifying performer of his era remains one of the great voices of our time. “

“We’re excited to be working with OSF and Inked Entertainment on this event.”, states Arena GM, Peter Blackmon.
“We saw a great show two years ago with Pam Tillis & Lorrie Morgan in a similar partnership. Creating a smaller intimate setting was very well received.”

Rantoul mother of 3 killed in early morning accident with a East Lynn Man

 Rantoul woman was killed in a crash early Thursday on U.S. 45 just north of Urbana.

Champaign County Coroner Duane Northrup said Shana Outlaw, 23, was pronounced dead at 6:40 a.m. at Carle Foundation Hospital, a victim of multiple traumatic injuries.

No autopsy will be performed, Northrup said.

Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Mark Holley said Ms. Outlaw was headed south in the right lane of U.S. 45 just south of Leverett Road when her car developed a mechanical problem and she stopped and got out. About 5:50 a.m., a pickup truck driven by a 30-year-old man from East Lynn whose name was not released struck her car.

The impact threw her car into the right ditch, police said. The man’s truck came to a rest on its top in the left lane.

Ms. Outlaw was found in the ditch after the collision, but Holley said it’s unclear if she was hit by the man’s truck or by her own car after the man’s truck hit it.

Ms. Outlaw’s three children, ages eight months, 4 and 6, were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Holley said.

The driver of the pickup was ticketed for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.

The crash caused the southbound lanes of U.s. 45 to be closed until about 11 a.m. while troopers investigated.

Shortly after 11 a.m., several Urbana officers and Champaign County sheriff's deputies responded to Carle's emergency room, where there was a report of a disturbance.

Urbana Sgt. Andy Hewkin said several members of Ms. Outlaw's family and friends were having an emotional reaction to the news of her death. Police quickly defused the situation and no one was hurt or arrested.
