Kudos to MERCURY NASHVILLE/19/INTERSCOPE RECORDS artist SCOTTY McCREERY, who raised $60,000 for the 12.14 FOUNDATION last NIGHT (12/4) at a fundraising concert in WALLINGFORD, CT.
The 12.14 FOUNDATION's mission is to develop programs that help children gain confidence, inspiration and skills to rise above and ultimately go beyond even the most horrific events. The programs will be an innovative combination of exploration of the arts, and a coherent, evidence-based personal development strategy. The organization’s long-term goal is to build a special center to house these multi-disciplinary educational programs, including a performing arts center, which will be based in NEWTON, CT, but its doors will be open to benefit people nationwide. The center will honor those lost in the NEWTOWN school shooting on DECEMBER 14, 2012, while providing a venue that supports many forms of healing and forward-looking positive change.
“It feels great to bring people together with my music and help such a worthwhile cause as the 12.14 FOUNDATION,” said McCREERY.
