The Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation to Launch Online Auction
Those who dream of a backstage meeting with Rascal Flatts, wearing a T-shirt signed by Kellie Pickler, getting hand written lyrics from Vince Gill, playing a guitar signed by Keith Urban, or sailing away on a bluegrass cruise featuring The Steep Canyon Rangers can bid on these items and more while supporting Minnie Pearl’s legacy, The Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation. The Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation (MPCF) will launch ‘A Commemorative Auction: Celebrating Minnie Pearl and Her Legacy’ this evening at 6 p.m. CST, with an array of country-music-celebrity items.
