That’s the total amount of money that will be sent to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, after Legend Communications’ Big Horn Radio Network hosted a concert last week and raised funds to support the organization.
Larry and Susan Patrick, owners of Legend Communications, say that individual donations, along with auction items that included an autographed guitar and cowboy hats, a replica Henry Sharpshooter Rifle and several 100th Anniversary Stampede belt buckles, raised over $45,000 in just one evening at Cody Stampede Park.
The Patricks have pledged to match the amount raised on June 27th and submit that total amount to St. Jude.
While there is no official estimate as to the number of people who attended the concert by country music superstar Clint Black, singer/songwriter Carin Mari and Nashville artist Craig Campbell, the Patricks say over 5,000 people participated in the free concert event last Thursday.
