COUNTRY WITH HEART

BENEFIT FOR ST. JUDE CHILDREN’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL

CELEBRATES 4TH ANNUAL DONATION

Country Music Stars and Fans Joined Together This Weekend For A Wonderful Cause and Great Entertainment

 NASHVILLE, TN (June 10, 2018)
— The generosity and kindness of country music fans and entertainers
fulfills the name of the Country With Heart benefit for a fourth year
with an impressive donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for
the total of four-thousand, three-hundred dollars.
The money was raised Saturday, June 9th at the Nashville Nightlife
Theater during a night filled with music, dancing, dinner and an
auction.

Organizer and host, Bobby Marquez states, “So many times we are all
looking for good folks or good news. We had a huge room full of
hundreds of country music fans, music industry professionals,
entertainers and local business owners who kept asking if there was
anything they could do. I can’t explain how special this evening was. I
am so proud! And I pray that money makes a big difference for some
families who really need that hope right now.”

This year’s show kicked off with a true celebration of the success
of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Former patient Petey Northrup
was in the spotlight. The 31-year-old’s story was originally believed
to be cut short by childhood leukemia, but through amazing care at St.
Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Petey is still enjoying a wonderful
life today.
