Jake Owen Foundation Donated $30,000 to St. Jude [VIDEO]
More than 4,500 people filled the bleachers and baseball field at Holman Stadium in Vero Beach, Florida, on December 10. But their attendance wasn't for a game. They were there to listen to some good country music and support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
RCA recording artist and Vero Beach native Jake Owen headlined his fifth annual hometown Jake Owen Concert. Adding to the excitement of this year's concert was the creation of the Jake Owen Foundation to support children battling cancer and other childhood diseases. Through the concert, the foundation donated $30,000 to St. Jude.
The concert featured special guest Little Big Town and St. Jude patient Abby, 11, who was successfully treated for cancer at St. Jude. Owen took time out from his pre-performance routine to hang out with Abby and then introduced her on stage during the check presentation.
