Carrie Underwood to donate $1 a ticket to Make a Wish
About her new residency, Carrie told People magazine that a dollar from each ticket will go to the Make A Wish foundation:
“…I’ve got a few years under my belt now and been lucky enough to have songs that people will know and can sing along with me,” Underwood adds. “I’m definitely looking forward to seeing all of the party people coming to Vegas to have a good time, to cut loose, let loose singing along to songs like ‘Before He Cheats’ and ‘Good Girl’ and ‘Last Name’ and this, all the sassy songs. I can definitely see it in my head already.”
Underwood has also added a charitable element, with a dollar from each ticket sale going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. “I love that it’s like, we’re all here together anyway, enjoying our night, we might as well be doing some good in the world as well,” she says. “And it’s such a small thing, $1 per ticket, but it really adds up. I’ve worked with Make-A-Wish for as long as I’ve been doing this.”
