Justin Frazell, morning show host on Fort Worth's 95.9 the Ranch
radio station, and his wife Casey established Pickin' for Preemies in 2005
after the premature birth of their daughter Jaycie. Just three
years later, their son Castin was also born prematurely. Today
in 2012, the Frazell's are happy to report both children
are normal, happy, and healthy 5 & 8 year olds, thanks to
wonderful staff & innovative technology at Fort Worth's Cook
Children's NICU unit.
Teaming together with their friends in
the wildly popular Texas-Red Dirt music scene, the Frazell's decided
to raise awareness for the "pre-term birth" cause. In doing so,
Pickin' For Preemies concert & their annual golf tournament, Puttin
for Preemies, have both morphed into marquee fundraisers for Cook's
Childrens NICU, helping donate to charity over $500,000 since 2005
and bringing together our D/FW metroplex for awareness to one of our
nation's most serious health problems.
Past artists have included Grammy & Academy Award Winner Ryan Bingham,
legendary country singer Charley Pride, and popular artists
in Texas-Red Dirt music movement such as Pat Green, Cody Canada, Randy Rogers, Casey
Donahew, Josh Abbott, Stoney LaRue, Eli Young Band, Wade Bowen, Bart
Crow, Jason Boland,
Cory Morrow, Kevin Fowler, Sonny Burgess, Deryl Dodd, Bleu
Edmondson, Aaron Watson, Bobby Duncan and way more.
With your concert ticket purchase or live auction donation or bid,
help us raise money & awareness for our local NICU hospital.
