Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton Set Date for Second Relief Concert.
Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton initially organized a special concert set for May 26th in Durant, OK to raise funds for victims of the tornadoes which recently hit Oklahoma. Well, tickets to that show sold out in two hours, and Reba and Blake decided to host a second concert! The second relief concert is set for May 25th, and tickets went on sale Friday. Proceeds from the both concerts will go to tornado recovery efforts for the residents of Atoka County, Oklahoma through the Tushka Disaster Relief Fund.
“A lot of people lost a great deal in this disaster and it’s particularly close to us because we both consider Oklahoma home. We wanted to do something and let the people in Oklahoma know that we love them and we’re praying for them during this difficult tragedy.” -Reba
In addition to the concert, a special mobile campaign has been set up with The mGive Foundation. Fans can text “OKGIVE” to 27722 to make a one-time $10 donation which will be added to their monthly cell phone bill. Checks can also be made out to the Tushka Disaster Relief Fund and mailed to: 101 SE 1st Street, Tushka, OK 74525.
