Neil Haislop notes that RASCAL FLATTS have donated proceeds from last weekend's Gaylord Entertainment Center concert in Nashville to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.
The $600,000 donation becomes the largest fund-raising event ever for the hospital, which includes a donation from Rascal Flatts of $350,000 from concert proceeds and a $250,000 donation from their record label Lyric Street Records and its parent company Disney.
Earlier in the evening at a pre-show VIP party, Gary, Jay and Joe Don accepted framed picture collages made by all the children at the hospital. They were presented to the guys by 3 patients whom they had met Sept. 14 during a visit to the hospital. The Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt is a leading provider of pediatric healthcare, ranked #8 among the nation's children's hospitals and #7 in the care of children with cancer by Child magazine.
Lyric Street's Dale Turner adds: "it was a special night....all the Disney characters joined the Flatts for a hospital visit a week prior to the concert and from that, a video presentation was incorporated during intermission."
