A host of country music’s hottest stars joined Martina McBride for her annual YWCA charity auction in Nashville last weekend.
The event, part of the CMA Music Festival – raised $102,000 to help eliminate domestic violence, and featured a range of items donated by stars such as Keith Urban (whose signed DVD and meet-and-greet package raised $3,800), Brad Paisley, Dolly Parton, Rascal Flatts and many more. Martina’s framed lyrics for her song She’s A Butterfly raised $22,000.
“It is Martina’s genuine support and the devotion of her fans that help make the auction so successful each year,” said Pat Shea, CEO of the YWCA. “It is so amazing to me that Martina has helped us raise over $100,000 in a few hours. Those dollars will help the YWCA help women and children who need counseling, medical care, support and emergency shelter as they flee violent homes. We are very grateful to Martina.”
Martina has hosted the annual auction since 1995.
