Britney Spears is to donate a percentage of her ‘Piece Of Me’ show ticket sales to Louisiana schools for flood recovery.
Britney, who was born in Kentwood Louisiana, has announced that $1 of every ticket sold from now until the end of the year, will go to public schools in Louisiana through a partnership with the Louisiana School Boards Association.
Speaking of her decision Britney said “I am so proud to be able to give back to my home state and help the Louisiana School Boards Association.”
“I can’t wait to see all my amazing fans when I return to Vegas for my last run of shows this year!”
The Executive Director of the Louisiana School Boards Association, Scott Richards, says that Britney’s contribution will go to a fund formed after devastating floods damaged several schools in the area last summer.
“We’re excited and appreciative of being able to work with Britney Spears to raise dollars to assist our local school districts that have been negatively impacted by the floods.”
Last Friday, August 11th, marked the one-year anniversary of the Great Floods of 2016.
Britney Spears launched her hugely successful Las Vegas residency show ‘Piece Of Me’ back in December 2013.
Originally only meant to run for two years, in 2015 Britney announced that due to overwhelming demand, the show was to be extended for a further two years.
Now, after four hugely successful years, Spears’s manager Larry Rudolph has announced that ‘Piece Of Me’ will not be extended following Britney’s current contract expiration with Caesars Entertainment at the end of 2017.
Her last show is set for December 31, 2017.
