The TUG MCGRAW FOUNDATION held its third annual fundraising gala "Denim & Diamonds: An Evening With TIM MCGRAW and Friends" last FRIDAY (11/2) at GRANT'S FARM in ST. LOUIS. The event was hosted by sports commentator BOB COSTAS and raised more than $300,000 for brain tumor research. Along with TIM MCGRAW, other performers included FAITH HILL, LORI MCKENNA, LANCE MILLER, HALFWAY TO HAZARD and brain tumor survivor DAVID M. BAILEY.
The TUG MCGRAW FOUNDATION was founded by NEW YORK METS and PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES pitcher FRANK EDWIN "TUG" MCGRAW, his Country superstar son TIM MCGRAW, and his friend and caretaker JENNIFER BRUSSTAR before his death from a brain tumor in 2004. For more information, visit www.tugmcgraw.org.
