In promoting Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Keith Urban is donating a custom made pink guitar for an auction. 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.
Keith Urban’s Fender guitar is black and has two pink ribbons. He recently played it on the Tuesday night Grand Ole Opry.
Urban is not the only country music artist to support Breast Cancer Awareness. Jason Aldean raised $315,000 during a sold out show in Roanoke, Virginia. Martina McBride flipped a switch to turn the Empire State Building in New York City pink on October 14, as well as help turn the Grand Ole Opry pink during a concert to honor breast cancer survivors on October 22nd.
