Ram’s all-star country music series, ‘Ram Jam,’ has been a resounding success. One of the main parts of the event leading up to the concert was called “The Road to Ram Jam.” All five of the country stars that would be performing as part of the concert were given Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn trucks with which to drive around before auctioning the trucks off with proceeds going towards charity. The five trucks have been sold off and the final total for the donation has been tallied. In total, they made $181.731.
The final truck sold belonged to Easton Corbin. His Ram raised $37,101 for the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund. The fund awards college scholarships to the children of the men and women in the Armed Forces who have lost their lives or limbs in defense of the country.
The other artists included Kellie Pickler, Brantly Gilbert, Billy Currington, and Zac Brown Band. They were all given the Longhorn trucks, including Corbin, in early January. Each one was then put up for auction to go towards the charity of the artist’s choice.
Breaking down the individual totals comes to Pickler raising $36,200 for the USO Warrior and Family Care program; Gilbert’s went for $34,552 and his charity was the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. Billy Currington’s charity was for Team Rubicon and raised $34,578 and Zac Brown Band, the charity being Camp Southern Group, raised $39,300.
The Ram Jam concert was held December 29th in Nashville. It was by invite only, but you can still see the highlights here. (http://music.yahoo.com/programs/ram-country/. )
