LeAnn Rimes Asks For Donations For Dickinson Nursing Home

LeAnn Rimes Helps Fundraise For Dickinson Nursing Home

LeAnn Rimes Ask For Donations For Houston Nursing Home Instead Of Gifts!

 

(HOUSTON) — Country superstar LeAnn Rimes celebrated her 35th birthday in Los Angeles this past week with Texas on her heart. Instead of birthday gifts, the Grammy-winning artist is asking for donations to assist the rebuilding of the La Vita Bella assisted-living facility in Dickinson, Texas.

The privately owned assisted living facility made national news when a photo on Twitter went viral as #HurricaneHarvey was spinning havoc on the city. Now the facility has gained the attention of country music sweetheart LeAnn Rimes.

After Mateo Sifuentes, a Houston native and the hairstylist for Rimes informed his client that his grandmother lived at the facility, Rimes felt a need to help.

Instead of gifts, Rimes asked for donations to the YouCaring fundraiser page to assist the facility in the re-building process. “Everyone has seen coverage on Harvey and its effects to Texas and Louisiana,” LeAnn Rimes said

“I was talking to my friend and hairstylist about a devastating image that I came across and it so happens that the woman in the photo was his friend’s grandmother,” Rimes said.

“So this year, instead of birthday gifts I ask you donate to his friend’s YouCaring account that will go directly to this nursing home clean up/rebuild going as soon as possible. Thank you!”

Rimes is a Texas native, growing up in Garland, Texas, a small suburb of Dallas. She was recently the headliner for the 2017 Pride Festival in Houston.

Music Icon Beyonce Rumored To Want The Houston Rockets Basket Ball Team

(HOUSTON) — Mega pop star, and Houston native and diva, Beyonce is considering becoming an investor in the National Basketball Association’s Houston Rockets.

Houston Rockets owner Les Alexander announced is a surprise media conference last month he was selling the team. Alexander paid nearly $85 million for the team in 1993, but the team sale could reach $2 billion.

Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z, at one time, owned a small percent in the New York Nets. Many celebrities do. For example, Justin Timberlake owns a piece of basketball’s Grizzlies.

Beyonce, who has performed wearing a Rockets jersey, would add superstar sizzle to any ownership group, likely helping the team with local and international marketing.
