Ronnie Dunn Lends a Hand to Southern Kentucky
Hosts Ronnie Dunn & Friends Holiday Bash Concert to benefit local charities.
As the holidays approach, country stars like Ronnie Dunn are lending a hand to some of their favorite causes. For a second year, Ronnie hosted his Ronnie Dunn & Friends Holiday Bash Concert, on Nov. 14 in Bowling Green, Ky., to help raise funds for an assortment of charities in southern Kentucky. Joining Ronnie for the effort were Brett Eldredge and Parmalee.
Proceeds from the event focused on children's education and welfare and benefited Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central Kentucky, Greensburg Shelter House, Boys & Girls Clubs of Glasgow-Barren County and Franklin-Simpson County, Kentucky Legal Aid and United Way of Southern Kentucky, among many others.
Prior to the concert, Ronnie visited the Boys & Girls Clubs of Glasgow-Barren County and Franklin-Simpson County, The Center for Courageous Kids and a local United Way program and captured the trip on video (watch below). “The most memorable thing was meeting the kids and a lot of the recipients and people that are involved [behind the scenes],” said Ronnie in a statement. “It has to mean something, or it’s not worth doing it. It’s for me as much as for anybody else.”
At the inaugural Holiday Bash, which is a follow-up fundraiser for the concert, Ronnie presented a check for $75,000 from his show. Holiday Bash 2013 is scheduled for Dec. 6 at the National Corvette Museum and tickets are available here.
