Country For A Cause raised $31,600 for Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt last month during their sold out CMA Fest 2022 concert at Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley.
Hosted by T.G. Sheppard and Kelly Lang, the night was filled with performances from John Rich, John Ford Coley, Michelle Wright, William Lee Golden & The Goldens, John Berry, Rhonda Vincent, Wendy Moten, T. Graham Brown, The Isaacs, Darin & Brooke Aldridge, Twitty & Lynn, Billy Yates, Rob Kurtz, Mackenzie Phipps, Paige King Johnson, Richard Lynch, and Devon O’Day.
“Our deepest appreciation goes to Scott Sexton and the entire Country For A Cause team for putting this amazing event together,” notes Meredith “Mamie” Shepherd, program manager for Seacrest Studio at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. “Community events like Country For A Cause help advance our mission of compassionate patient care, groundbreaking research, and clinical training. We are so grateful to Country For A Cause for supporting this vital work.”
“The day we presented the check to the hospital, we were walking in from the parking garage and there stood a woman sobbing into the arms of a man who was also in tears. As parents, you put on a brave face in front of your sick child, but once you walk out of those hospital doors, you can let it all go,” sharesSherri Forrest, President of Country For A Cause. “The stress, fear, and helpless feelings can take a toll on a family. If the money we raise from our concerts can help doctors with their research, or a single child to receive care, then what we do through Country For A Cause is worth it, 100%.”
