Gigi Butler, founder of Gigi’s Cupcakes, recently attended ACM Honors in Nashville, TN to present ACM Lifting Lives with a generous $10,000 donation. ACM Lifting Lives’ Hannah Martin and Wes Perry accepted the gift on behalf of the charity which works to improve lives through the power of music.

“Music education is very special to me,” said Butler, “I’ve been singing since I was a young child and moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music. I ultimately made a career out of baking incredible desserts instead, but I will always have a love of music. I think music enriches the lives of our children in so many ways.”

“The team at Gigi’s cupcakes has such big hearts and we are so thrilled to have their support in advancing the mission of ACM Lifting Lives to improve lives through the power of music,” said Martin.
