Lady Antebellum already announced that proceeds from their sold out fan club party on June 10 during the CMA Music Festival will be donated to Nashville flood relief efforts. Now, office supply chain OfficeMax has announced it is committing $50,000 to a fundraiser challenge as part of the fan club event.
“Our Nashville-based associates have participated in relief efforts since the flood occurred and we are very excited to join Lady Antebellum in doing even more for this community,” says Paul Hertz, OfficeMax, executive vice president, retail operations, “As a company, we are acutely aware of challenges schools face in the best of times and we wanted to bring additional support to Nashville schools at this time of dire need.”
OfficeMax will match every dollar donated by Lady Antebellum fans for Nashville schools up to a total of $50,000. OfficeMax is committed year-round to helping schools and teachers, most notably through their annual event, “A Day Made Better,” where more than 1,000 teachers at 1,000 schools across the country receive $1,000 worth of classroom supplies.
While tickets to attend the Lady Antebellum fan club party may be sold out, fans can still stream the event live online through www.livestream.com for a minimum $5 donation.
Lady A has been heavily involved in efforts to help Nashville recover from record flooding and recently took part in GAC’s Music City Keep on Playin’ – A Benefit for Flood Relief at the historic Ryman Auditorium where more than $1.8 million dollars was raised.
