The generosity of Concert fans paired with a little help from Hooters is a powerful combination when bringing in donations for disaster relief in West Alabama.
Give Tuscaloosa was able to raise over $1,200 at Kenny Chesney’s show on May 25th at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater. Working with Hooters, Give Tuscaloosa manned two booths at the sold-out show taking donations, offering free wings, and letting everyone know about all the new t-shirts available to help with the relief efforts.
“We got to meet all sorts of great people, both local and from out of town, eager to help out,” Chamber of Commerce intern Alex Stewart said. “One of the coolest thing was meeting a couple who had lost everything in the tornado. Even after such a tragedy, they made a special point to give what they could to help all the others affected by the storm. I was also glad to see them get a chance to relax and have fun after such a traumatic event,” Alex continued. The concert closed with a “God bless you all and God bless Alabama” from Kenny and a standing ovation from the fans.
