Miranda Lambert Changes Location For Annual ‘Paws’ Event
Miranda Lambert’s annual ‘Cause For The Paws’ concert is moving a little farther away from her hometown in East Texas for it’s fifth year. Having outgrown it’s previous venue in Tyler, this year’s event will happen at Beaumont’s Ford Park.
Well, I guess its a darn good problem to have–Miranda Lambert’s annual MuttNation event that usually happens right down the road in East Texas, has grown too large to be contained in Tyler. So, they’ve packed up shop and are headed to Ford Park in Beaumont, Texas for this year’s fifth installment of ‘Cause For The Paws’. Here’s a few words about the event from Miranda:
“We are so excited about the next chapter in the life of MuttNation Foundation in aiding and assisting animals in need,” said Miranda “After four years in East Texas we found ourselves in need of hosting the benefit concert in a bigger venue. Beaumont, Texas, reached out with open arms to help us with our mission. Aside from music, this is my biggest passion in life, and those of you who can attend the show are sure to have a time you won’t forget! Also, remember that every penny of profit from the benefit goes into the fund that helps us accomplish our mission to end animal suffering and homelessness.” –Music City News
“I’m thrilled to say that in the past four years we have been able to contribute over $700,000 to abused, abandoned, neglected, or unwanted animals,” said Bev Lambert, the Director of MuttNation. “We plan on doing even more outreach in 2012. One exciting partnership that we have entered into in this past year is with the Red Star Emergency Relief Service to assist in disaster relief for animals displaced or abandoned as well as the rebuilding of shelters harmed or destroyed. The most exciting thing is that we are partnering with them to bring home our military service dogs from the recent war efforts. These military animals are currently being retrained to provide service to the wounded warriors and therapy for their families.” –Music City News
