Jo Dee Messina has been invited to the White House on Friday (June 1) to meet with President and Mrs. Bush and some of the country’s top breast cancer researchers. Later that night, Messina will have dinner with Vice President Cheney at the official V.P. residence. As previously reported, the country star has been tapped as the celebrity spokesperson for the National Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, a 5K run in Washington, D.C., that raises money for breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment. Messina will run in the race on Saturday (June 2) and sing at a post-race concert. 05/30/01
