Vince Gill Raises Money And Gets An Auditorium

Kudos to MCA artist VINCE GILL who returned home to help the CLEVELAND ARTS & SCIENCE SPECIALTY SCHOOL in OKLAHOMA CITY. The BACK IN CLASS event took place on the same stage where a then seven-year-old GILL made his very first public appearance, but this time he helped to raise $100,000 to renovate the OKLAHOMA CITY PUBLIC SCHOOL's auditorium.
In addition to raising money, GILL picked up a few accolades from his home state. He was the recipient of the 2007 OKLAHOMAN OF THE YEAR AWARD from OKLAHOMA TODAY magazine and the auditorium that is being renovated was re-named that VINCE GILL AUDITORIUM.
