CLIVE, Iowa — Carson King and Iowa musicians are coming together to put on a concert to benefit the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.
The “Carson King Countdown” will serve as a last-minute push to raise funds for King’s Venmo campaign. All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to King’s Venmo account before the midnight deadline at the end of September.
The concert is a collaboration between King, Chris Ranallo, Royce Johns, Horizon Events Center and organizers of the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival.
“Carson King’s willingness to transform his 30 seconds of fame into a viral fundraising campaign for kids inspired us to get Iowa’s music community involved for a final push…and, well, it’s going to be one hell of a show!” said Ranallo.
