FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
COUNTRY STAR MIRANDA LAMBERT TO HOST HER
THIRD ANNUAL “CAUSE FOR PAWS” BENEFITTING
THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF EAST TEXAS
With special guests Whiskey Myers, Kacey Musgraves and GAC’s Nan Kelley
Nashville, TN (February 9, 2010) --- General admission tickets to Miranda Lambert’s Third Annual “Cause for Paws” Benefit go on sale this Wednesday, February 10 at 10 a.m. CT. The concert event and live auction benefitting The Humane Society of East Texas will be held Saturday, May 15, 2010 at the Villa de Felicita in Tyler, Texas. Thanks to Miranda’s loyal Ran Fans and the East Texas Citizens, The Humane Society of East Texas has become a no kill sanctuary since the fundraiser began three years ago.
This year, the platinum-selling recording artist, 3x Grammy nominee and animal activist will bring together friends and family along with special guests Whiskey Myers, Kacey Musgraves and Nan Kelley for an intimate evening of fantastic music, delicious cuisine and a serene setting at the beautiful Villa Di Felicita.
"I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together for my charity," states an enthusiastic Lambert. "The shelter, which is run entirely on donations, was able to make great improvements and create better living conditions for the animals of East Texas last year, but there is still so much that needs to be done for the abused and unwanted animals of East Texas.”
Activities at the event will include musical performances, a live and silent auction, and food and wine. Miranda’s road buddy, Delilah, will surely make a special appearance at the event again this year.
Cause for Paws isn't the only time Miranda lends her voice and celebrity to little creatures who can't speak for themselves. This week, she and Blake Shelton hosted the "Hearts and Tails" benefit.
"Because of the amazing response and the support of the community we had for the "Hearts and Tails" benefit in 2009, we've been able to do some wonderful things for the animals in Tishomingo," said Miranda. "This year, my charity MuttNation Foundation hopes to build on that success and continue to help unwanted and abandoned pets.”
