Chris Young Supports St. Jude Children’s Hospital With ‘Neon’ Christmas Tree
Chris Young is spreading his love for Christmas and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital by sponsoring a special holiday tree that can be found inside Nashville's Gaylord Opryland Resort. This is the second time the singer has sponsored a tree as part of the hotel's fifth annual Hall of Trees, with is once again benefiting the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other deadly childhood diseases.
Each tree in the hall is decked out by the appropriate sponsor and tied directly into a charity of his or her choice. Young, a big supporter of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, chose a 'Neon' theme for his tree this year, which coincides with his latest studio album of the same name. Young's tree, and the other trees on display, will be auctioned off with all of the proceeds going to their chosen charities.
"During my visit to St. Jude, I met some incredible little kids who were fighting for their lives," Young says in a press statement. "I hope my fans will enjoy the 'Neon'tree and help me raise funds for St. Jude to support its life-saving mission."
The highest bidder of Young's 'Neon' tree will also receive a Chris Young autographed guitar, a $100 iTunes gift card, a Chris Young snow globe, an autographed four-pack of Chris Young CDs, a 'Country Strong' movie poster autographed by Gwyneth Paltrow, an autographed photo of Miranda Lambert, a digital picture frame, a tree ornament handmade by Young's 83-year-old grandmother, autographed handwritten lyrics of Young's song 'You,' 'Neon' tree ornaments, a custom made 'Neon' logo sign and more.
