KPentertainment’s roster of emerging and established artists will come together to connect directly with fans for individual virtual meet & greets to raise money for all of the urgent needs of the Red Cross mission.  

Starting today, fans can sign up for the chance to receive a meet & greet by making a monetary donation to the Red Cross via www.redcross.rallyup.com/kpentertainment towards the artist of their choice. Once fans donate an amount of their choosing, they will be entered to win a one-minute one-on-one meet & greet with their selected artists. Fans will receive 10 entries for every $10 donation, 30 entries for every $25, 75 entries for every $50, 200 entries for every $100 or can donate a custom amount. 50 winners will be randomly selected, and each winner will receive a confirmation email with a unique code to sign up for a meet & greet reservation within the Looped app. Winners will also receive a digital copy of their recorded session with the artists. Sweepstakes entries for each artist will be open weekly, with a different KPentertainment artist featured every Monday through Friday. Participating talent and sweepstakes schedules:

"American Red Cross is always one of the first to respond, or show up, when a natural disaster or tragedy strikes. They haven’t stopped during this unprecedented pandemic and always do so much to help meet needs across the country. I am honored to kick off this campaign along with KPentertainment,” said Cole Swindell.

 The funds raised through the sweepstakes will support the Red Cross mission, including:

  • Hospital patients who need critical blood every two seconds.
  • People who need food, shelter and care after disasters of all sizes.
  • Military families who need emergency assistance. 
  • People who rely on others to save their lives with skills like first aid and CPR. 
  • Communities worldwide that need humanitarian aid.

“We are honored to partner with KPentertainment’s incredible roster of generous talent for this special effort,” said Don Herring, Chief Development Officer for the Red Cross. “This is a unique way for us to say thank you to those who support our ongoing efforts to prevent and alleviate human suffering through the lifesaving Red Cross mission.”
