Jason Aldean brought his annual “Concert For The Cure” to Friday night’s THEY DON’T KNOW TOUR stop at Louisville, KY’s KFC YUM Center. Featuring special guests Chris Young, Kane Brown and Dee Jay Silver, the night highlighted Aldean’s longstanding partnership with Susan G. Komen® as he donated a portion from all ticket sales garnered throughout the year to Komen Kentucky. Since the inaugural event in 2004, Aldean’s efforts have raised more than $3.6 million to benefit Susan G. Komen chapters across the country.
“These women and their families are fighters,” said Aldean. “We’ve been having them backstage every night for the last couple years now and I’ve heard their stories first-hand. We’re going to keep fighting with them until there’s no more breast cancer.”
“We are so appreciative of Jason’s gift, which will help us to continue providing resources for those affected by breast cancer in our community,” said Lynda Weeks, Executive Director of Susan G. Komen® Kentucky. “This funding will be invested in furthering research and patient services across the Commonwealth. In addition to the generous donation, the Concert for the Cure provided an impactful venue, which allowed us reach thousands with critical facts about breast cancer, including symptoms and screening. Our sincerest thanks go out to Jason Aldean for his support of our mission!”
