Randy Owen and Teddy Gentry of ALABAMA Donate $25,000 to Kentucky Storm Victims

During a concert held Saturday (August 6th) in Sharpsburg, Kentucky, Country Music Hall of Fame group ALABAMA donated $25,000 – to help the people and communities affected by recent flooding in the Bluegrass State.

Before the packed crowd at that event two of ALABAMA’s founding members – Randy Owen and Teddy Gentry – presented a check to the non-profit organization known as  The Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky which provides financial assistance to the eastern Kentucky families, farms and many, many businesses suffering as a result of  that catastrophic weather event.

Owens and Gentry made the generous donation through their June Jam Foundation – which distributes monies to other non-profit organizations and service groups.

Randy Owen said, “With all the devastation caused by the floods in eastern Kentucky, this is a very emotional time and ALABAMA wanted to offer help in a small way.” And Gentry added, “We hurt for the loss of life and the destruction caused by the floods in Kentucky – hopefully these funds can help all of the families, farmers and businesses that were affected.  They are in our prayers.”
