Bobby Bones, host of iHeartMedia’s The Bobby Bones Show, and his comedy band The Raging Idiots participated in Caritas of Austin’s 8th Annual Words of Hope dinner last week and helped raise a record $320,000. Held at ACL Live at The Moody Theater in Austin, Texas, the annual fundraiser supports Caritas mission to assist people on their journey out of crisis toward self-sufficiency through housing, food, education, and employment services.
The Raging Idiots played a 90-minute show to a sold out crowd of over 1,400 attendees, and Bones was invited to speak about how he overcame hardships in his early life growing up in Arkansas, including the death of his mother due to a drug overdose. He also shared some fun stories about his life in radio, relationships and celebrity encounters.
Bones and Eddie stated, “It was an awesome night with an awesome crowd, and we were honored to help raise money for such a worthy cause.”
