Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation Raises $70,000 for Tishomingo, Okla.

For the second year in a row, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton performed at a benefit concert in Tishomingo, Okla. Nearly $70,000 was raised at the sold out event, which featured acoustic performances from Lambert, Shelton and Clancy Davis (Shelton’s cousin), as well as a cocktail party, dinner and live and silent auctions.
The event, hosted by MuttNation Foundation, was held in an effort to financially support Tishomingo and surrounding areas with specific attention to the local Veteran’s program and the Tishomingo Animal Shelter. The shelter is currently under construction with the proceeds from last year's event. This year's proceeds are submitted to assist in maintenance and staffing of the shelter. 
Additional organizations receiving funds from the event include:
·       Tishomingo School System or Band Boosters for Music in the Schools
·       The American Legion of Tishomingo
·       The Veteran's War Memorial 
·       Murray State College Scholarship Fund
·       The Millborn Fire Department
·       The WW II Veteran's of Tishomingo
·       Tishomingo Splash Pad Water Park (Phase I)
In a little over six weeks, Lambert will hold her Third Annual “Cause for Paws” Benefit in Tyler, Texas. The concert event and live auction benefits The Humane Society of East Texas and will take place on Saturday, May 15, at the Villa de Felicita.
