Miranda moves 'Cause for the Paws' to a new home | News
SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV)- Miranda Lambert has moved her annual "Cause for the Paws' benefit out of East Texas.
Cause for the Paws is Miranda's annual concert benefiting her MuttNation Foundation. The first four years of the event were held here in Tyler, but Humane Society of East Texas Director Gayle Helms told KLTV this February that after last year's event, Miranda's team opted for a "bigger venue."
Helms announced that the Humane Society of East Texas will benefit from the 'Rebels & Roses' music festival at KE Bushman's in May. Outlaw Music has donated a guitar that will be signed by all of the artists performing at the festival. The guitar will be raffled off with all proceeds going to the Humane Society. Raffle tickets are $5 and are available at Outhousetickets.com.
The three-day 'Rebels & Roses' music festival, put on by Outlaw Music, boasts more than 25 bands, many of which are local, and even camping.
Tickets to the Roses & Rebels music festival are available on Outhousetickets.com. The concert is slated to kick off May 10, and will run through May 12.
MuttNation spokesperson Bev Lambert, Miranda's mother, says the MuttNation foundation has contributed more than $700,000 to abused, abandoned, neglected, and unwanted animals in the last four years.
Helms says Bev Lambert has made a verbal pledge to the HSOET that a donation will be made to the organization from this year's Cause for the Paws. However, Helms does not know the amount of the donation.
The Fifth Annual Cause for the Paws benefit concert will be held this year in Beaumont at Ford Park on June 22.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. April 27 on TicketMaster.
