Alan Jackson Supports the CCA's Blue Note Fund
Country music legend Alan Jackson recently released a limited supply of his beautifully hardbound photo book, Seasons of Sweetbriar. The book holds more than 200 photos of the picturesque Jackson family estate in the hills of Tennessee, and thanks to the Jacksons' generosity, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the CCA’s Blue Note Fund. We sincerely thank Alan and his wife, Denise, a colon cancer survivor, for their altruism and partnership in assisting colon cancer patients in need.
Hear from Denise about the photographic collection or purchase
the book today.
Shop for a Cause!
As you’re making your list and
checking it twice, don’t forget to stop by the CCA’s online store and cause
partnerships page. Thanks to our partners, a portion of every purchase you make
will go directly to the CCA’s lifesaving patient support, research and
education programs. From blue star ties and
tees to books and
bracelets, you can feel good knowing that your gift is making a difference
for years to come.
