Lady Antebellum To Play Ping Pong For Charity
Lady Antebellum fans likely already know that bandmates Hillary, Dave, and Charles love to play ping pong backstage during their tours.
Now the band is taking their love of the game to a new level, with a fan/celebrity ping-pong tournament that will benefit their new charitable organization LadyAID™. The event will take place Saturday, March 23 and also include a round-robin-style songwriters’ concert.
“This is really a dream day for us…getting friends and fans together to play ping pong, play music and raise money for LadyAID,” Dave Haywood said in a press statement. “Charles and I…better known as ‘The Dynasty’…will challenge anyone who wants to try and take us at the table! It’s going to be a total blast.”
According to the LadyAID website, the March 23 event consists of an invitation-only luncheon with personal testimony about the band’s passion for the project; a fan/celebrity ping pong tournament; and a musical event with the members of Lady Antebellum as well as some of their singer-songwriter friends. Tickets go on sale Feb. 15.
LadyAID Fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee aims to bring awareness to and generate support for children in need, from the local to the global level.
