Country Singer Raises Money for Animals
Grammy-winning singer Miranda Lambert is holding another charity fundraiser in Texas. Called Cause for the Paws, it will be the fourth one she has hosted. Donations for the event will go to abused and abandoned animals living at the Humane Society of East Texas. Last year the charity gathering raised almost $100,000.
Miranda will perform at a venue in downtown Tyler, with guests such as Stoney Larue, Josh Kelley and Nan Kelley. Tickets are $25 to $65 and go on sale February 25th for the April event. Ms. Lambert has also started a foundation to raise money for animal shelters called the Mutt Nation Foundation. The website features rescued animals, and images of pets uploaded by fans. Here is a video with some shots of her at one of the previous charity performances:
Lambert was won one Grammy Award, for Best Female Country Vocal Performance — “The House That Built Me,” (see below) and has been nominated for three others. Two of her recent shows with nearly 6,000 seats sold out in 30 minutes.
