Bonnie Raitt holds benefit for biodiesel education in Tennessee

By | January 01, 2006
Musician and activist Bonnie Raitt, currently touring the country on cleaner-burning biodiesel, hosted a benefit event for biodiesel education at a performance in Knoxville, Tenn. Thanks to Raitt's belief in biodiesel and her generosity, the National Biodiesel Board (NBB) was able to sell a special lot of tickets for biodiesel supporters and Raitt fans. Most tickets included invitations to a dessert reception with Raitt after the show. The proceeds raised will benefit biodiesel education programs in Tennessee through the East Tennessee Clean Fuels Coalition (ETCFC) and Tennessee Soybean Promotion Board.

"We have been extremely pleased working with Bonnie and her team to raise awareness for biodiesel," ETCFC Executive Director Jonathan Overly said. "Her passion for the environment really shines through, even during the outstanding show she put on."

Raitt is using B20 in two buses and two tractor-trailers. This is the second tour in which the blues entertainer has used B20.
