Carrie Underwood’s dedicated fans made a substantial contribution of $420,316 to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, thanks to their support during the Denim & Rhinestones Tour.
A meaningful initiative was put in place, with one dollar from each ticket sold earmarked for the foundation. This contribution aims to bolster their mission of providing vital care and assistance to veterans, first responders, and their families.
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation is committed to offering mortgage-free residences to families of Gold Star and fallen first responders. Additionally, they construct specialized homes designed to accommodate veterans and first responders who have endured severe injuries or disabilities.
“I’m incredibly proud of the fans who came out to the tour and made this donation possible,” expressed Underwood. “They have consistently shown their support for remarkable organizations like Tunnel to Towers, not only enhancing the world but also joining us for our performances.”
This philanthropic endeavor isn’t the first time the singer of “Out of That Truck” has teamed up with a nonprofit during her tours. In fact, Underwood has a history of allocating a portion of ticket sales to various charitable causes and organizations, a tradition she’s upheld for several years.
Frank Siller, CEO and Chairman of Tunnel to Towers, expressed profound gratitude, stating, “We are filled with joy and deep appreciation for this kind gesture. Carrie’s substantial contribution, backed by her dedicated fans, will directly impact the lives of many of our nation’s heroes and their families. It will not only provide them with financial assistance but also serve as a source of hope and a testament to the recognition and honor of their sacrifices.”
Underwood also extended her support by inviting members of the organization to join her during her performance on the Today show on Thursday, September 14th.
Looking ahead, the “Hate My Heart” sensation will be returning to Las Vegas for her Reflection: The Las Vegas Residency, with scheduled dates in September, November, and December. She has also just announced an additional 18 dates for 2024, spanning from March to August.
