During a concert held this past Saturday, August 6, in Sharpsburg, Kentucky, Country Music Hall of Fame group ALABAMA donated $25,000 to aid those affected by the recent flooding in the Bluegrass State.
Before a packed crowd at the Barnyard Venue, ALABAMA founding members Randy Owen and Teddy Gentry presented a check to The Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky, a non-profit organization providing financial help to eastern Kentucky families, farms and businesses that are suffering as result of the catastrophic weather event.
Owen and Gentry made the donation through the June Jam Foundation, ALABAMA’s non-profit which distributes monies to other non-profit organizations and service groups.
“With all the devastation caused by the floods in eastern Kentucky, this is a very emotional time,” says Owen. “ALABAMA wanted to offer help in a small way.”
“We hurt for the loss of life and destruction caused by the floods in Kentucky,” adds Gentry. “Hopefully these funds can help the families, farmers and businesses that were affected. They are in our prayers.”
