Ronnie Dunn donated his time and talent for the second year in a row to raise funds for southern Kentucky charities with the “Ronnie Dunn & Friends Holiday Bash Concert.” The event took place November 14 at the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center in Bowling Green, Kentucky and featured Brett Eldredge and Parmalee.A total of 15 charities benefited from the night.
On September 30, Ronnie traveled to the area to visit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Franklin-Simpson County and Glasgow-Barren County, The Center for Courageous Kids and a local United Way program. He participated in some of the organizations’ daily activities, got to know staff members and spent one-on-one time with kids.
“The most memorable thing was meeting the kids and a lot of the recipients and people that are involved [behind the scenes],” Ronnie said. “It has to mean something, or it’s not worth doing it. It’s for me as much as for anybody else.”
Last year, Ronnie surprised guests at the Holiday Bash, a follow-up fundraising event to the concert, by presenting a check for $75,000. The Holiday Bash 2013 will take place December 6 at the National Corvette Museum. For more information on how to purchase tickets or donate items for the charity auction, visit WBKO.com.
