Ronnie Dunn Concert Brings In Thousands For Local Charities

By Brett Baldeck | 

Ronnie Dunn rocked the house Thursday night to a sold out crowd. More than $100,000 was raised in ticket sales. After expenses, that money will go straight to the 17 charities of Holiday Bash who are hopeful more families will have a happy holiday.

"Time and time again I am blown away by the commitment that Southern Kentuckians have to the community and their willingness to band together and say I want these non-profits to have this support," says Mandy Hicks of the United Way.

"It's awesome that something like this would take place and give to us and give to the youth of our community, the youth of the future," says Pam McIntyre from the Boys and Girls Club of Bowling Green.

"So much money was raised and the charities are so appreciative of what the community does for us," says Maria Fisher of Big Brothers, Big Sister of South Central Kentucky.

And of course there would have been no concert if it wasn't for Ronnie Dunn. Kids from local charities were able to thank Dunn in person before the "Cowboy Rocked".

"The kids had a great time he didn't just come in and sit down and want to get it over with he actually talked to us and was interested with what we did and wanted to spend some time with each of the charities that were there," says McIntyre.

"It just really meant so much to those kids to be able to personally thank him and actually I heard that one of them was a little nervous as he was standing there waiting for Ronnie Dunn to come into the room," says Fisher.

"Your dollars are really going to help everybody who needs it exactly when they need it the most," says Hicks

As the season of giving continues, South Central Kentucky's generosity continues to make an impact.
