The Ram Truck brand continues its successful “Road to the Ram Jam” all-star country music series with the first of five charity auctions where each participating artist will auction off their 2012 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn truck to benefit a charity of their choice.
Starting Tuesday, January 22nd at 1pm EST fans can bid on Kellie Pickler’s Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn truck with all the proceeds from the auction benefiting the USO Warrior and Family Care program, a comprehensive long-term effort designed to help our nation’s wounded, ill and injured troops, their families and caregivers navigate through the challenges of recovery. To get more information on the charity auction hosted on eBay Giving Works and to bid on Kellie Pickler’s truck please visit www.ebay.com/roadtoramjam.
Kellie loves her truck saying,
“I love everything there is to love about my Ram Truck. I have to be honest I am a little sad about giving it up but its for a great cause, and we really want to raise a lot of money for the USO, so please log on and bid.”
Kellie isn’t the only one participating in this event. Other artists who will auction off a truck include, Brantley Gilbert, Billy Currington, Zac Brown Band, and Easton Corbin. Each of these artists received a one-year lease on a 2012 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn truck. Over the next three months these trucks will be auctioned with all proceeds going to benefit a charity of each artist’s choice. Fans will have two weeks to bid on each artist’s truck.
Brantley Gilbert’s truck will go up for auction February 5th with all proceeds going to benefit Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). Following Brantley will be Billy Currington on February 19th with proceeds benefitting Team Rubicon, Zac Brown Band on March 5th with proceeds benefitting Camp Southern Ground, and Easton Corbin on March 18th with proceeds benefitting the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund.
The Road to the Ram Jam series was the ultimate fan experience. The invitation-only 2012 RamJam concert event held on December 29th in Nashville, TN was a huge success with a performance by all five participating artists. For those that missed the live stream of the concert event on Ram Country on Yahoo! Music you can go to http://music.yahoo.com/programs/ram-country/ and check out some of the highlights from the night.
This is great benefit for a lot of good causes. Love to see the artists participating in these sorts of things!
