The Grand Ole Opry and Scotty McCreery continued the Opry’s “Cause For Applause” last month, the show’s mission to support nine important causes throughout 2015 as part of its 90th anniversary celebration.
April’s cause, “Thank God For Kids,” was a partnership with the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, where McCreery performed for children and their families and also shared toys and toy instruments from the Opry’s retail collection.
Throughout April, Opry fans were able to designate a portion of Opry show and special merchandise (Opry-themed toys and toy musical instruments) sales to the hospital when mentioning the code 4THEKIDS. Other activities throughout the month included an online charity auction as well as continued artist and Opry staff visits to the hospital.
This month, the Cause For Applause is the USO. Find out more here.
