LADY ANTEBELLUM SETS INAUGURAL LadyAID™ FUNDRAISING EVENT “PING PONG & SONGS” FOR MARCH 23 IN NASHVILLE, TN
Two Part Event Includes A Celebrity Ping Pong Tournament And Intimate Concert
Nashville, TN – Feb. 12, 2013 – GRAMMY winning trio Lady Antebellum have set the date for their inaugural PING PONG & SONGS fundraising event for March 23 in Nashville, TN. Inspired by a combination of the band’s favorite backstage hobby and their love of songwriting, the event includes a celebrity ping pong tournament and an in-the-round style songwriters’ night, both benefiting the group’s newly created charitable initiative LadyAID™. Tickets for both portions of the event go on sale this Fri., Feb. 15 at 10:00A CT through LadyAID.org.
“This is really a dream day for us…getting friends and fans together to play ping pong, play music and raise money for LadyAID,” said Dave Haywood. “Charles and I…better known as ‘The Dynasty’…will challenge anyone who wants to try and take us at the table! It's going to be a total blast.”
With registration to the tournament, players will receive a commemorative player kit and two tickets to the finals and concert portion of the event. Individual tournament finals tickets and ticket bundles are also available for purchase. All proceeds will benefit LadyAID™. For more ticket information or to make a donation, visit LadyAID.org.
LadyAID™ was set up in 2012 by the seven-time GRAMMY award-winning trio Lady Antebellum as a philanthropic effort created to bring awareness to and generate support for children in need locally, nationally and globally. The multi-level organization reaches children across the state of Tennessee through grants to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. On a national level, LadyAID™ is supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and on a global level, myLIFEspeaks and The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR). The LadyAID™ Fund is a component fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
