The King of Country, George Strait, along with CID Entertainment, is running an auction for the majority of shows on his much anticipated “The Cowboy Rides Away Tour” to benefit The Jenifer Strait Memorial Foundation. The winning bidders will receive a pair of front row seats and Meet & Greet passes to meet George. All proceeds benefit The Jenifer Strait Foundation.

The Jenifer Strait Memorial foundation was set up to honor the memory of Jenifer Strait, George’s daughter. The fund donates money to various children’s charities in the San Antonio and Houston areas, including The Boys and Girls Clubs of San Antonio and St. Jude’s Ranch.

“The Jenifer Strait Memorial Foundation was formed to preserve the memory of our daughter,” Strait shared when speaking about the organization. “Even though she was just a child of thirteen years, her love for younger children was amazing. It is for this reason that we chose to help others who might be in need, in her honor.”

The Cowboy Rides Away Tour will offer fans one last opportunity to take in the King of Country live. This tour is sure to be filled with all of the hits from throughout his career, as well as new music from his latest album. Martina McBride is also set to join George for the 2013 dates.

The auction is currently underway and will be open until Thursday, November 1, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. ET.

Additionally, CID Entertainment is also offering two exclusive VIP packages at each stop on the tour. The packages include front row tickets, private pre-show, admission to a private exhibition of George’s memorabilia, and more.
