Jason Aldean x BCA. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Let's spread the word! And how does Jason Aldean factor into supporting this cause? We're glad you asked.
Aldean's eighth annual "Concert for the Cure" will be held Friday, October 25 in New Orleans at his sold out 2013 Night Train Tour stop at the New Orleans Arena.
Throughout the year, Aldean sets aside 50 cents of each concert ticket sold, then selects one show market in October and donates all proceeds to their local Susan G. Komen Affiliate, which is a breast cancer charity.
"Last year the Komen New Orleans team needed a little over $1 million to meet all their needs, but they were only able to fund about half of that," said Aldean. "If we raise the half a million that we did last year in Dallas we'll be able to help these women meet their goal and provide the services the town needs. I can't wait to see an arena full of pink in support of such a great cause!"
Aldean conceived the concept of a charity concert after losing a friend to breast cancer.
If you are not in NOLA and can't make this show, what can you do to support BCA aka Breast Cancer Awareness? Buy a pink lip gloss that donates proceeds to a BCA fund! Buy a shirt! Something, anything!
