George Strait Launches Another Charity Auction in Honor of Late Daughter
Country superstar George Strait may be launching his final tour, but that doesn't mean he's finished helping out the charitable causes that are nearest and dearest to his heart. After an overwhelming outpouring of support for a recent online charity auction, the good-hearted singer has launched a second online auction which kicked off Friday (Nov. 23), with the proceeds going to benefit the Jenifer Strait Foundation.
The singer and his family formed the Jenifer Strait Foundation in memory of his daughter Jenifer, who was killed in a car accident in 1986 at the age of 13. The foundation relies on private donations, which are donated yearly to child-related charities. Over the years the foundation has supported Boysville, the Greater San Marcos Youth Council, Dare to Love Rainbow Room, Boys and Girls Club of San Antonio, Youth Alternatives, Carver Academy, and St. Jude's Ranch, among others.
This month's online auction will allow fans to bid on two exclusive VIP packages for each stop on Strait's upcoming The Cowboy Rides Away Tour, which will include two front row tickets, a meet and greet with Strait, private pre-show access, admission to a private exhibition of Strait’s memorabilia and more.
