In celebration of 100 years of care, Shriners Children’s is excited to announce the Celebration of the Century, with a special performance by acclaimed multi-platinum entertainer singer-songwriter Dierks Bentley. Taking place at Minute Maid Park in Houston on Saturday, November 12, 2022, this is sure to be a once-in-a-lifetime event you won’t want to miss.

Prepare for a memorable evening of high energy and excitement with many surprises in store, including star-studded entertainment. The focus of the big night will be on raising funds to support the compassionate, specialty care that Shriners Children’s provides to children across the globe in commemoration of the healthcare system’s 100th anniversary.

“We are excited to host the Celebration of the Century featuring Dierks Bentley, and know it will be an unforgettable night with an even greater purpose – to raise awareness and funds for Shriners Children’s,” said Kenny Craven, Imperial Potentate (president) of Shriners International and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Shriners Children’s. “For 100 years, Shriners Children’s has been devoted to providing hope and healing – backed by expertise and innovation – to every child we treat, and we look forward to continuing our mission to improve the lives of children around the world far into the future.”

Shriners Children’s is a special, one-of-a-kind healthcare system with a reputation for finding answers, and giving families hope for their child’s future. Since opening their first hospital in 1922, Shriners Children’s has made it their mission to improve the lives of children, regardless of a families' ability to pay or insurance status.

Over the last century, Shriners Children’s has become one of the largest pediatric sub-specialty healthcare systems in the world, and treated more than 1.5 million children from more than 170 countries. Today, their multiple locations in the United States, Canada and Mexico provide advanced care for children with a range of orthopedic issues, as well as care for burn injuries, craniofacial conditions, spine care and spinal cord injuries, colorectal and gastrointestinal care, and sports medicine. Shriners Children’s commitment to changing lives hasn’t changed, but has only strengthened, and we are looking forward to the next 100 years of care.

Houston area philanthropists and business leaders, Maria and Eduardo Morales, serve as co-chairs for the Celebration of the Century event. They, along with their daughters, Valentina and Victoria, are a Centennial Sponsor of the event.

We are looking forward to an extraordinary night full of fun, excitement and world-class entertainment, featuring the one-and-only country superstar Dierks Bentley.

Added Maria, “In addition to this being an unforgettable evening of entertainment, we are proud to be raising funds to support Shriners Children's and their incredible mission to improve and transform the lives of children around the world.”

Dierks Bentley's upcoming 10th album landmark speaks to how time has flown in Bentley’s unique, 21st-century career. He landed his first publishing deal in 2001 and released his debut album in 2003, producing an instant number one single. The years since have revealed a rare consistency that’s fueled longevity – eight more albums that reached the top of the Country sales charts, resulting in 21 number one songs, 6.4 billion streams, three CMA Awards, 14 GRAMMY® nominations and membership into the Grand Ole Opry. Trendy sounds have ebbed and flowed around him over these two decades, but fans have relied on Bentley for something more nourishing and individual. He "is indeed one of Country music's biggest stars” (TODAY) as his new single “Gold” is "a jam session vibe" (Billboard) that continues to build on his enviable legacy. He also has created professional endeavors outside of the music with his Flag & Anthem lifestyle collection Desert Son, along with his “Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row” franchise hosting four locations.
