FUNL MUSIC artists TY HERNDON and AMBER HAYES were on hand this past weekend to help former ALABAMA and NFL player KEVIN TURNER raise just over $100,000 at a private NASHVILLE ALS fundraiser event.
Held SATURDAY (6/18) at a private estate in BRENTWOOD, TN, the fundraiser was attended by more than 250 people, including numerous current and former ALABAMA and NFL players and coaches. HENDON and HAYES performed at the event, which included two auctions featuring collectible sports memorabilia and jewelry, a cigar tent, food, drinks and appearances by current CLEMSON coach and former ALABAMA receiver DABO SWINNEY and ALABAM coach GENE STALLINGS.
HERNDON’s song “Journey On” is the official song and video of the KEVIN TURNER FOUNDATION. TUNER was diagnosed with ALS in MAY 2010 and started the KEVIN TURNER FOUNDATION in OCTOBER 2010 to help raise awareness and money for ALS research and the emerging connection between ALS and concussions. The $100,000 raised at this weekend’s event benefits the foundation.
