Scotty McCreery Wants To Honor Sharon Eaves, St. Jude For His Birthday

MERCURY NASHVILLE/19/INTERSCOPE artist SCOTTY MCCREERY is turning 22 TODAY (10/9), but instead of sending gifts or cards, MCCREERY has encouraged his fans to make a donation to ST. JUDE CHILDREN'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL. Not only is the cause close to MCCREERY's heart, but it was close to the heart of his fan club President, SHARON EAVES, who passed away suddenly on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25th while at a ST. JUDE ADVISORY BOARD meeting in NASHVILLE (NET NEWS 9/28).
"I have many blessings in my life, and I don't need 'things' to celebrate my birthday," said MCCREERY. "But I miss my friend SHARON, who would have had a birthday [on WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7th] if she was still with us. I'd love to see my fans honor her and continue her great work with ST. JUDE."
