Jason Aldean’s sixth annual “Concert for the Cure” on Friday (9/30) raised $315,000 for Susan G. Komen for the Cure® during a sold-out show in Roanoke, Va. “This is one of my favorite things we do all year,” said Aldean. “All of the money we raised will go to the local Roanoke effort, allowing them to give free mammograms to those who can’t afford it. We’ll pick a different spot for next year and try to beat it. October is a big month for raising money and awareness, and I have to thank my fans for doing their part! Seeing an arena filled with pink is just a really cool thing!”
