John Rich helps St. Jude take a sad song and make it better

Country star, TV star, businessman, and philanthropist John Rich is putting his assets in the saddle to ride to the rescue for St. Jude's Children's Hospital. Having already raised $700,000 for St. Jude from his appearance on last year's Celbebrity Apprentice, John Rich is back at it leading a benefit concert to raise even more money. John and musical partner Big Kenny along with Kelly Pickler, Darious Rucker and Jeff Foxxworthy will present a kickoff concert to the 2012 FedEx St. Jude Golf Classic in Memphis, TN. The concert takes place on June 5th at the Cannon Center. For those who can't make the concert, you can still donate via the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital website. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives and, for every child treated here, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries. The hospital has played a pivotal role in pushing U.S. pediatric cancer survival rates from 20 to 80 percent overall, and is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. It is also a leader in the research and treatment of blood disorders and infectious diseases in children.
