After spending his weekend playing pop-up shows at his Ole Red restaurant and event space in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, Blake Shelton decided to give back to his hometown in a big way.
The country superstar donated $50,000 of ticket sales to the city of Tishomingo, benefiting Pennington Park, which provides RV hookups, camping, boat ramp access, walking trails, fishing and a swimming hole on its 15 acres. The donation will help fund improvements to the splash pad and the addition of water features.
Blake spoke about the donation, saying, "It's always fun to play your hometown, and now that we have Ole Red in Tishomingo, we can pop up and play anytime. We played a lot of music, had fun, and raised money for Pennington Park! Now, that's a good time!"
