Jason Aldean Sets Date for 2013 Concert for the Cure
This year’s show is in New Orleans.
Jason Aldean isn’t afraid to put on pink from time to time, and he’ll likely be wearing it when he holds his annual Concert for the Cure on Oct. 25 in New Orleans.
This is Jason’s eighth annual show to raise money for Susan G. Komen, an organization that helps create awareness of breast cancer and the importance of early detection. His 2012 Concert for the Cure was held in Dallas. Throughout the year, Jason earmarks 50 cents from every concert ticket sold, then he selects one market’s local Susan G. Komen affiliate to receive the proceeds.
“Last year the Komen New Orleans team needed a little over $1 million to meet all their needs, but they were only able to fund about half of that,” said the CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee. “If we raise the half a million that we did last year in Dallas, we’ll be able to help these women meet their goal and provide the services the town needs. I can’t wait to see an arena full of pink in support of such a great cause!”
