Dierks Bentley’s fifth annual “Miles & Music for Kids” raised more than $250,000 for Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
On Sun., Oct. 17, a pack of 1200 bikers rode to his concert where 5000 fans packed Riverfront Park for a jam-style concert featuring Bentley, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Del McCoury, Heidi Newfield, Jerrod Niemann, Mat Kearney and Laura Bell Bundy. The “Miles & Music for Kids” series has raised over $1.5 million for Childrens Miracle Network hospitals in Phoenix, Dallas-Fort Worth, Atlanta and Seattle.
Multi-platinum country rocker Jason Aldean donated proceeds from his Oct. 15 show in Evansville, Ind. to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® as part of his 5th Annual “Concert For The Cure.” Roberts Stadium was blanketed in pink to support the cause and an impressive $132,000 was raised, the most in the event’s 5-year history.
“We started this in memory of a close friend, and I know she would be proud of how much we were able to donate from the show in Evansville,” says Aldean. “I saw a lot of fans in the crowd wearing pink too, and thanks to them and everyone else that came out, we were able to raise more money than ever before.”
