For the past 13 years, Jason Aldean has been doing his part to help raise awareness for breast cancer research. His best friend lost his wife to the disease back in 2004, when she was in her early thirties.
For the ACM Entertainer of the Year's upcoming "They Don’t Know Tour" beginning next month in Toledo, Ohio, he's offering breast cancer survivors the chance to be an "honorary roadie" again. At select shows, a breast cancer survivor and their guest get tickets, VIP backstage access, and a private meet and greet. Jason basically rolls out the red carpet for them, and gives them the royal treatment.
They have dinner with him and everyone putting the show together, hang out, see the concert and more.
Just go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation website at komen.org/Jason-Aldean to enter or nominate someone.
Jason says, quote, "As long as I'm doing what I'm doing, I will do what I can to fight breast cancer and celebrate its survivors . . . we're going to treat as many survivors as we can this year with a night out to take their minds off everything else."
Jason will also continue to give a portion of each ticket sold from his shows to Susan G. Komen. So far, he’s raised more than $3 million for the cause.
