Hats Across the Row, a benefit for The Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation (MPCF), will be held Tues., April 17 at 3 p.m. on Music Row. The event includes a parade down 16th & 17th Aves. S. with Kerry Collins and his motorcycle gang, the Hillwood High School Marching Band, antique Mini Coopers, and an array of stilt walkers, hula-hoopers and Minnie Pearl look-a-likes. Festivities will conclude with a party at Major Bob Music (1111 17th Ave. S.).
The event launches a year of celebration for The Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation, marking Minnie Pearl’s 100th birthday, and the organization’s 25 years of service.
