I was always told fas a child from my granparents, Danny! Smile, be kind and help those in need when you can and good things will come of it. As you know I’m a huge St Jude Fanatic, It’s the charity of my choice and have helped raise over $50,000.00 dollars for the kids with my Golf Tournamentand, Walksand so much more. Lets be honest we all want to help the kids at St. Jude, and this year is no different maybe a bit difficult sincd we can’t have outdoor concerts, golf tourneys or walks to raise money so we have to look at different ways to help raise fundsfor the kids and the familys that are there are a daily basis.
So this is the perfect way to get it done, Stars from multiple music genres have signed on to participate in a virtual music festival to benefit ST. JUDE CHILDREN’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL, which has organized the effort. Set for this Thursday August 13th beginning at 5p (ET), the six hour livestream, called “Music Gives: Together #forSTJUDE,” will feature six “stages,” as well as culinary content featuring well-known chefs instructing viewers how to prepare festival foods.
Among the artists set to perform from the worlds of Country, Pop, R&B, Latin, Indie, Gospel and more are: Tim McGraw, Keith Urband, Cece Winans, JAson Mraz, Brad Paisley, Brett Eldredge and Alabama, Darius Rucker and so many more.
“Summertime often brings people together for a favorite pastime: music festivals,” said Richard C Shadyac Jr. Pres./CEO of ALSAC, ST. Jude’s fundraising and awareness organization. “During this time of social distancing, the incredible ambassadors and celebrity friends of ST. JUDE are ensuring that our summer does not go by without one, and leveraging their talent to make a huge difference for the children of the world.”
