For the eleventh year in a row, country superstar Jason Aldean‘s “Concert for the Cure” benefited the Susan G. Komen Foundation in a big way! The entertainer donates a portion of his annual ticket sales to the cause and presents the organization with a hefty check at the musical event — with this year’s contribution taking the grand total to over 3.3 million dollars for the fight against breast cancer.
“It was a pretty full-circle moment for me to be able to bring this show back to Nashville where it got started as we go over the three million dollar mark,” expressed the country star. “I could see a lot of family and friends out in the audience this year, which is a big reminder that we still have to keep fighting this disease.”
“Through the generosity of Jason Aldean and his devoted fans, we have the opportunity to increase our support for critical breast cancer research along with education, screening, and treatment programs for millions of women, men, and families in Nashville and all over the world,” stated Dr. Judy Salerno, President & CEO of Susan G. Komen. “His commitment to this cause has been unwavering and through his support, we’re one step closer to our vision of a world without breast cancer.”
In addition to performing a set, Aldean flipped the switch on the venue’s famous backdrop, turning it pink for the special occasion. Hillary Scott & The Scott Family, Mickey Guyton, Chris Young, and Cassadee Pope also added their star power to the event.
Jason Aldean has been dedicated to helping fight breast cancer since 2004, after losing a dear friend to the terrible disease. Share this with other fans of the Georgia native!
