McGraw Concert Raises $1 Million in Florida

Tim McGraw’s Nov. 18 benefit concert at Florida State University in Tallahassee raised more than $1 million for the school. The profits will be used to construct a new building for the FSU Career Center building and to fund a newly-formed scholarship in honor of McGraw’s father, baseball great Tug McGraw, who died in January of brain cancer. The Tug McGraw Baseball Scholarship will be distributed annually to members of the FSU baseball program. “I can’t express enough to the fans that attended the concert how much it means to me and my family that a person will have the chance to go to college because of the Tug Scholarship,” McGraw said. “He would get a real kick out of that.”
