Charles Esten Performance to Benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)

To conclude the two-day event, Charles Esten will perform an exclusive concert and conversation during Celebrate Insight. Esten is best known for his roles as Ward Cameron on the NETFLIX global hit show Outer Banks, and Deacon Claybourne on ABC/CMT’s Nashville. He has performed hundreds of live concerts and multiple headline tours in the U.S., Germany, Amsterdam, and U.K., including the Royal Albert Hall. In his adopted hometown of Nashville, Esten serves as the National Honorary Spokesperson for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s annual “Light The Night” Walk, and as a board member and volunteer for Musicians On Call.

Esten and his family are long-time LLS supporters since daughter Addie was diagnosed with Leukemia at age 2½. Thanks to advances in treatment, Addie is thriving today. During Insight, in addition to answering attendee questions, Esten will also perform several songs, including a special “Light The Night” song in honor of his daughter.

“Having Charles Esten as our special guest at Insight to entertain Deltek Project Nation is especially meaningful because we have a shared commitment to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) —a cause near and dear to many of us at Deltek,” said Perry Hardt, Chief Marketing Officer at Deltek. “We are thrilled to be making a $10,000 donation to LLS to honor Team Addie as part of this exclusive concert and conversation with Charles”
