Clay Walker Hosts The 5th Annual “Give MS The Boot” Gala

Clay Walker hosted his 5th Annual “Give MS the Boot” gala on September 30th at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Houston, TX. The gala, which raised over $155K, serves to help support Clay Walker’s nonprofit, Band Against MS (BAMS), to continue the outreach and education efforts as well as the research grants it provides. The evening, presented by TEVA and SHELL, featured a live performance by Walker, a silent auction, an exclusive “Paintjam” with the speed painting artist Dan Dunn and a presentation of the “Clay Walker MS Band of Hope” Award to recipient and ABC 13 Anchor Melanie Lawson.

“As someone who has lived for 20 years with relapsing remitting Multiple Sclerosis, I know how difficult the MS journey can be. That is why my nonprofit, Band Against MS (BAMS) was created,” said Clay Walker. “We have launched a diligent battle to not only get answers but to help find solutions for a multitude of struggles that MS patients go through on a regular basis and to support research to find a cure.  I am personally grateful to all who supported and participated in this wonderful event.”

The “Give MS The Boot” gala was hosted by Great Day Houston’s very own Deborah Duncan who helped make it an exceptional night for the 225 people in attendance. The “Clay Walker MS Band of Hope” Award is presented by Multiple Sclerosis Association of America and BAMS. It recognizes exceptional individuals, groups, or organizations who have made significant contributions to improving the lives of others affected by Multiple Sclerosis.

The funds raised from the gala will go to benefit BAMS and local programs such as the MS Forum and Open Discussion that was held the following day at the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Houston.  The MS Forum is a unique opportunity for individuals with MS and their loved ones to speak to leading MS researchers about MS research and patient care. Clay Walker joined the group as the MS patient panelist. Funds will also benefit the Clay Walker Band Against MS Ride to be held at the Home of the Shell Houston Open in Humble, TX on Saturday, March 25, 2017 and MS research at the University of Texas.

As a true fan favorite with a devoted legion of followers across the country Clay Walker has sold over 11 million albums; had 11 No. 1 hit singles, four RIAA Platinum and two Gold certified albums, under his belt. He is best known for hits including “She Won’t Be Lonely Long,” “What’s It To You?,” “This Woman and This Man,” “If I Could Make A Living” and “Live Until I Die.”


Clay Walker Talks About New Music and the Urgency of Raising Awareness for MS

It’s been 20 years since Clay Walker was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), but he still fights to bring awareness to the often debilitating disease. He hosted his 7th annual Chords of Hope benefit concert during this year’s CMA Music Festival and brought along special guests Craig Campbell and Joe Nichols.

“They both reached out to us, which I think says a lot about their character. I can’t say enough good things about them and I hope to get the chance to return the favor very soon for them.”

The show raises money for the Vanderbilt MS Center, as well as Walker’s own Band Against MS charity, which has raised more than $3.5 million since its start in 2003.

Fans may not know much about multiple sclerosis when coming to his shows, so Walker uses the event to educate and entertain. Although he is currently in great health, he knows that many others facing the disease often face more severe symptoms.

“There’s an urgency and importance to raise awareness about what it is, so we can find new and better ways to live with it and eventually cure it.”

So what about new music? Last summer, Walker released a single called “Right Now” and fans have been anxiously waiting for more.

“We’re shopping record labels right now and trying to decide the best way to get the music to the fans, the fastest and most efficient way. That’s kind of tedious. We live in a world today that there’s multiple channels to get music into the public and we just want to find the right ones. And obviously, the fans can come out to the live shows and hear the new music.”

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has teamed up with Clay Walker, and Joel and Victoria Osteen of Lakewood Church, to raise funds and awareness for the Greater Houston Storm Relief Fund – providing donations and financial assistance directly to the residents of our city who are suffering devastating loss from the recent floods. Houstonians are invited to a benefit concert, Friday, May 20th at 8 p.m. at Lakewood Church.

“So many people in our area suffered extreme loss due to these recent floods. Many lost more than possessions – jobs, family members, homes and in some cases their livelihood,” said Mayor Turner. “It is our privilege to come together and help our fellow Houstonians recover. I thank all of the wonderful people who have made this opportunity to help others in a big way possible.”

This benefit concert, headlined by Walker, will include a talented line-up of locally and nationally known musicians, celebrities, community leaders and those who care about Houston, will engage and inspire the community to give in a number of ways. Individual donations will grant anyone entrance to the live concert, viewers and others not in attendance will be given the opportunity to give by texting HOUSTON to 91999, sending a check to the Greater Houston Community Foundation/Greater Houston Storm Relief Form; via wire or money transfer and credit card. All details can be found at Corporations and donors also will be honored for their support in this effort to bring relief to our community.

“Houston has been home to me for most of my life. It is an honor to help those in need by joining together to heal hearts and repair the structures that shelter so many families who make up the rich fabric of our community,” said Clay Walker. “This is an opportunity to do good and feel good inside by uplifting our neighbors and showing them we care and are willing to share in their struggle as we all rebuild.”

“We are proud of our Lakewood Church staff and volunteers for their efforts helping our fellow Houstonians recover from the recent flooding. We are honored to continue these efforts as a part of Houston Recovers, and look forward to partnering with the Mayor’s office, as well as business, civic, and faith leaders, city relief organizations, and celebrities to raise funds for those who need it most,” said Joel and Victoria Osteen, Pastors of Lakewood Church.

Mayor Sylvester Turner has established The Greater Houston Storm Relief Fund, to accept flood relief donations that will stay in our community. The fund will focus on aiding storm victims “We’ve been hearing from residents who are confused about where they should donate to get assistance directly to the residents of our city who are suffering, said Mayor Turner. “The creation of this fund will ensure the dollars donated stay in our community. The fund will focus on aiding storm victims and relief organizations in Harris, Fort Bend and Montgomery Counties,” added Turner. He said the fund will be administered by the Greater Houston Community Foundation (GHCF), a 501(c)3 non-profit public charity.

The concert will be broadcast and streamed LIVE on KTRK-ABC13 and SiriusXM Joel Osteen Radio, channel 128, 8-10pm CT, with multiple replays all weekend.
