RCA artist MARTINA McBRIDE helped raise $102,289 for the NASHVILLE YWCA, a 29% increase over last year, when they held the “YWCA Celebrity Auction,” this past SUNDAY, JUNE 13th. McBRIDE has hosted the event for the YWCA since 1995.
“It is MARTINA’s genuine support and the devotion of her fans that help make the auction so successful each year,” said CEO of the YWCA PAT SHEA. “It is so amazing to me that Martina has helped us raise over $100,000 in a few hours,” PAT continued. “Those dollars will help the YWCA help women and children who need counseling, medical care, support and emergency shelter as they flee violent homes. We are very grateful to MARTINA.”
Some of the big ticket items in the auction included a BRAD PAISLEY guitar with a meet and greet for $6,000, a KEITH URBAN meet and greet and autographed “Living Right Now” concert DVD for $3800 and a MARTINA McBRIDE autographed and framed GRAND OLE OPRY poster announcing her induction to the OPRY for $4600.
The event was sponsored by CLEAR CHANNEL Country WSIX (THE BIG 98)/NASHVILLE.
