CURB artist LEANN RIMES held a benefit concert for the tornado victims of ALABAMA and MISSOURI, on SUNDAY (6/5) at JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA’s PONTE VEDRA CONCERT HALL. “An Evening With LEANN RIMES,” which was co-hosted by RIMES and her husband EDDIE CIBRIAN, also included a silent auction with signed memorabilia from JUSTIN BIEBER, KELLY CLARKSON, KIM KARDASHIAN, REBA McENTIRE and the cast of “GLEE.”
RIMES told WJXT-TV/JACKSONVILLE, “We're raising $35,000 to help those people out ... get them homes, get them bed, get them cars, get them jobs. It's just getting their lives back on track again."
The concert and silent auction was proposed by JACKSONVILLE resident JONATHON JAXSON, who used TWITTER to contact RIMES. LeANN was on her honeymoon but responded immediately.
