John Rich Announces Concert for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
John Rich is once again rallying his famous friends to help support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The singer-songwriter will headline St. Jude Presents John Rich and Friends, a special event set for June 9 at the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts in Memphis, Tenn.
"I’m incredibly proud that the St. Jude Presents John Rich and Friends charity event has grown into an amazing entertainment event over the past four years, while continuing to support the kids of St Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” Rich says. “It’s a blessing to be part of an industry that has supported St. Jude so passionately for the past 30 years.”
St. Jude Presents John Rich and Friends will help kick off the 2015 FedEx St. Jude Classic golf tournament week. All proceeds will go toward St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Rich has been a longtime supporter of the children's hospital. He won Celebrity Apprentice in 2011, raising more than a million dollars for the worthwhile cause. In honor of his numerous contributions in battling childhood cancer and other illnesses, he was awarded the first Randy Owen Angels Among Us Award in 2012.
“St. Jude holds a very special place in my heart,” Rich says. “It’s like no other place, and I’m just so honored to help raise awareness for this organization."
