<em>Tornado Relief Concert w/ Reba at Choctaw Casino</em> 4216 S. Hwy 69/75 Tornado Relief Concert w/ Reba - Durant, Oklahoma Time: 8:00 PM <p> <p>For country superstars like Reba and Blake Shelton, home is definitely where the heart is. Both hailing from Oklahoma, the news of Atoka County’s recent tornado disaster prompted the stars to reach out to the affected area. Reba was born just outside of Kiowa, which is approximately 30 miles away from the greatest devastation. Shelton was born in Ada and currently resides in Tishomingo, less than 50 miles from the Atoka County border. Reba and Shelton made a decision to host the “Tornado Relief Concert” on May 26 in partnership with the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and Choctaw Casino Resort as a way to help their hometown friends.</p> <p>Approximately half-a-million dollars in damages was caused by the recent storm, which destroyed many homes, schools and businesses. All proceeds from Reba and Shelton’s “Tornado Relief Concert” will go towards Atoka County’s ongoing relief efforts through the Tushka Disaster Relief Fund. Tickets will be available beginning May 6 at 10:00 AM and may be purchased by phone at 1-800-585-3737 or online at <a target="_blank" href="http://www.choctawcasinos.com/">www.choctawcasinos.com</a>.</p> <p>“A lot of people lost a great deal in this disaster and it’s particularly close to us because we both consider Oklahoma home,” said Reba. “We wanted to do something and let the people in Oklahoma know that we love them and we’re praying for them during this difficult tragedy.”</p> <p>“Oklahoma defines who I am and seeing the effects this disaster has had on my neighbors, I knew I had to do something,” said Shelton. “Reba and I have a lot of love for this state and we wanted to do what we can to help. This place is my home and these people are family to us.”</p> <p>In addition to the proceeds raised from the concert, a special mobile fundraising campaign has been set up with The mGive Foundation to raise funds for relief efforts. Fans can text<strong>“OKGIVE” to 27722</strong> to make a one-time $10 donation which will be added to their monthly cell phone bill. Funds will be donated to The mGive Foundation for the benefit of the Tushka Disaster Relief Fund. Checks can also be made out to the Tushka Disaster Relief Fund and mailed to: 101 SE 1st Street, Tushka, OK 74525.</p> <p>For more information on “Tornado Relief Concert,” please visit:<a target="_blank" href="http://www.choctawcasinos.com/">www.choctawcasinos.com</a></p> <p>For more information on Reba, please visit: <a target="_blank" href="http://www.Reba.com/">www.Reba.com</a></p> <p>For more information on Blake Shelton, please visit: <a target="_blank" href="http://www.BlakeShelton.com/">www.BlakeShelton.com</a>></p> <p>For more information about The mGive Foundation, please visit: <a href="http://www.mGive.org/">mGive.org</a></p> </p>
