Lady Antebellum Announces Organization To Help Children
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Seven-time Grammy winning country music trio Lady Antebellum announced Monday they are starting an organization targeted specifically at helping children locally, nationally, and globally.
LadyAID will reach children across the state of Tennessee through grants to Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Nationally, LadyAid will support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and on a global level, myLIFEspeaks and The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR). The LadyAID Fund is a component fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
LadyAID will be funded by donations and fundraising efforts including the trio's inaugural PING PONG & SONGS event. Inspired by a combination of the band's favorite backstage hobby and their love of songwriting, the event will be held in early 2013.
