Edmond teen star Greyson Chance raises $40,000 for charity with hometown benefit shows
Oklahoma teen music sensation Greyson Chance, 13, brought in more than $40,000 between his two concerts and a meet-and-greet Saturday, reports Tricia Pemberton, one of my fine colleagues at The Oklahoman.
Greyson performed Saturday at Edmond Santa Fe High School for Double Wolf Dare Week, the school’s annual charity drive.
The Edmond-raised teen played to an audience of more than 500 people Saturday afternoon and almost 1,000 people Saturday night. In between, he met with about 250 fans during a meet-and-greet.
Ninety-five percent of the money raised for Double Wolf Dare Week will go to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, an international nonprofit organization that raises funds and awareness for children’s medical group, Tricia reports.
Five percent of the money will go to Angels Foster Family Network, which helps place foster children age 3 and younger. That charity is shared by all three Edmond high schools’ annual fundraising campaigns.
