George Strait has announced the final tour dates of his career, and he’s going out in style.

Not only is the legendary country singer going out on top, with a recent CMA Entertainer of the Year win and a string of sold-out dates in the country’s biggest venues, he’s also helping out a cause near and dear to his heart in the process.The 61-year-old entertainer is auctioning off front row seats to stops along this final tour to raise money for the Jenifer Strait Foundation.

The country icon and his family launched the charity organization in memory of his daughter Jenifer, who died tragically in 1986 in a car accident at the age of 13. The trust has traditionally relied mostly on private donations, but Strait more recently partnered with CID Entertainment for a series of auctions in every city to raise money for the foundation. So far the revenue from bids on front row seats, as well as meet and greet passes, has reached $450,000.

The venture has been so successful that Strait has decided to extend it into the last leg of the tour. Bidding on front row seats and meet and greet passes for the final live dates of Strait’s touring career began on Tuesday (Nov. 26), and will last through Dec. 17. To bid on these once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, visit this link.

The money raised for the Jenifer Strait Foundation is donated each year to a variety of children’s charities, mostly in the San Antonio area where Strait and his family reside. Those beneficiaries include the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Antonio, and St. Jude’s Ranch.
