The City of St. Petersburg announced today that Republic Nashville’s multi-platinum and award-winning country music superstar Martina McBride will perform live at the second annual Dollars for Doorways fundraising event on Saturday, November 5 at 8 p.m. at downtown St. Petersburg’s scenic Demens Landing.

The event is a fundraiser for the city’s Mayor’s Mentors & More scholarship program, which has funded more than 1,100 four-year scholarships for at-risk students over the past 10 years.

“The Dollar for Doorways event is a great opportunity to come out and enjoy the great talent of Martina McBride in a beautiful waterfront setting, while at the same time supporting the education of our young students through Doorways scholarships,” said St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster.

“I am proud to get behind the Mayor’s endeavors in support of the Mayor’s Mentors & More program and I am honored to bring Martina to our fine downtown corridor,” said Bill Edwards, Principal of Bill Edwards Presents.
