Handmade Quilts Produced By Chris’s Grandmother, “Nanny”
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 7, 2012) – RCA Nashville recording artist Chris Young continues his feverish support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, one of the world’s premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other deadly childhood diseases, by offering up a one-of-a-kind handmade quilt designed and produced by his grandmother, “Nanny.”
May’s quilt, which highlights many of the songs Chris has recorded across his three albums, is available for bidding via the Forum on Chris Young’s official website. Bids can be made on the Chris Chatter Forum on his website. A new quilt, handmade by “Nanny,” will be offered each month through May with all monies donated to St. Jude.
“I think it’s really cool that Nanny has taken up the cause to help raise money for these incredible St. Jude kids who are fighting for their lives,” said Young. “I hope my fans will check out her handmade quilts each month and consider making a bid to help support St. Jude.”
