Keith Urban will donate a customized Fender guitar to the Susan G. Komen for The Cure for auction in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The black guitar with pink ribbon adorning the body will be available to bidders at the end of the month, after Urban has played it at each of this month’s shows.
According to a press release on his website, Urban specially requested the guitar from Fender as a way to acknowledge October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
The ‘Long Hot Summer’ singer is just one of the country stars actively supporting this month’s cause. Last Friday, Jason Aldean raised $315,000 during a sold out show in Roanoke, Va. Martina McBride will flip a switch to turn the Empire State Building in New York City pink on Oct. 14, and will play Grand Ole Opry pink on Oct. 22 during a concert to honor breast cancer survivors.
