NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 14, 2015) – Long after the Charlie Daniels 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena came to an end, its immense impact on U.S. military members and veterans remains. Backstage at Wednesday night's event, Volunteer Jam performer and legendary Opry star Jeannie Seely was there to accept a $10,000 donation from talk show host, Sean Hannity, on behalf of The Journey Home Project.
And if you think that's all, just wait. SiriusXM's "The Highway" personality Storme Warren also donated $10,000 to The Journey Home Project after losing a challenge Hannity issued -- seeing who could throw a football the farthest from the stage to the back of the house. Warren vowed if he lost the challenge, he would match Hannity's donation. Sure enough, Hannity's throw outstretched Warren's by long-haul!
Warren and Hannity's contributions totaling $20,000 will be used to further the efforts of the (501) (c) (3) co-founded by Charlie Daniels and his long-time manager, David Corlew, to support those veterans organizations that do the most good in meeting the healthcare, education and career needs of the military and their families.
