Lady Antebellum Announces Inaugural LadyAID Fundraiser

Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott from Lady Antebellum

Grammy-winning trio Lady Antebellum have set the date for their inaugural “Ping Pong & Songs” fundraising event for March 23rd in Nashville, Tennessee. Inspired by a combination of the band’s favorite backstage hobby and their love of songwriting, the event includes a celebrity ping pong tournament and an in-the-round style songwriters’ night, both benefiting the group’s newly created charitable initiative LadyAID™. Tickets for both portions of the event go on sale on Friday, Feb. 15th at 10:00 a.m. central time through LadyAID.org.

“This is really a dream day for us… getting friends and fans together to play ping pong, play music and raise money for LadyAID,” said Dave Haywood. “Charles and I… better known as ‘The Dynasty’…will challenge anyone who wants to try and take us at the table!  It's going to be a total blast.”

With registration to the tournament, players will receive a commemorative player kit and two tickets to the finals and concert portion of the event. Individual tournament finals tickets and ticket bundles are also available for purchase. All proceeds will benefit LadyAID. For more ticket information or to make a donation, visit LadyAID.org.
