When the Louisville music community heard about thousands of dollars stolen from a 3-year-old with Leukemia, they stepped up in a big way. WDRB reports there’s a benefit planned for Addie Roberts at Jim Porter's Good Time Emporium. On St. Patrick's Day, families can come between 6 and 9:30 p.m. There is a minimum donation of $10 per person to get in, but children five and under are free. Kyle Nunn, a former family friend, is now behind bars at Metro Corrections accused of stealing $9,000 from her charity, Addie's Army, by pretending to set up a Jason Aldean concert for her. Fifteen bands initially signed up to play, now there are 26. Mom's Music and Guitar Center children's bands are also expected to perform. "Jason Aldean's management has contacted us and said they'd like to provide merchandise, signed merchandise, to provide for the benefit that should accumulate a large amount of money."
