Country artists like Thomas Rhett, Jason Aldean and more are joining with other celebrities to help raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, through their Gifts That Give Auction. More than 20 experiences are up for auction, including vacations, one-on-one time with artists, VIP experiences and more.
“Although we cannot be together in person this holiday season, Charles and I are dedicated to honoring and supporting the families at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” Cassie Kelley, St. Jude Leadership Council member and wife of Lady A’s Charles Kelley said in a statement. “I am so honored to chair this auction and I hope it brings some joy and fun to all. Cancer does not stop and with support from generous donors, neither will St. Jude.”
Patients at St. Jude never receive a bill for any of the treatment offered. Families also receive free housing and travel expenses, and have their living expenses covered as well during treatment. In addition, St. Jude also freely shares their research with other hospitals, in the hopes of ending childhood cancer across the globe.
Some of the experiences up for auction include a pre-show dinner with Thomas, along with tickets to one of his upcoming shows, a double date with Jason and his wife, Brittany, at E3 Chophouse in Nashville, a meet-and greet with This Is Us star Chrissy Metz and virtual concert tickets, a pre-show champagne toast with Lady A, a four-night stay at an oceanfront suite in Maui, and much more.
