"Like our friends, business partners and health-plan members here in Nashville and around the country, we’ve seen how the historic flooding has devastated this community, and we wanted to join in the effort to support the people who’ve been impacted by the flooding"

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Humana (NYSE: HUM) and The Humana Foundation joined with businesses and individual donors from across Tennessee and the United States on Sunday, May 16, in making a contribution to support Nashville’s flood-relief effort – as part of a national telethon aired on the Great American Country (GAC) cable channel. GAC, the Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau, and Gaylord Entertainment sponsored the telethon. Humana and The Humana Foundation contributed $50,000.

“Like our friends, business partners and health-plan members here in Nashville and around the country, we’ve seen how the historic flooding has devastated this community, and we wanted to join in the effort to support the people who’ve been impacted by the flooding,” said George Renaudin, vice president and South division leader in Humana’s Medicare organization.

Evans Looney, president of Humana’s Commercial operations in Tennessee, said, “We certainly appreciate GAC, the Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau, and Gaylord Entertainment for teaming up to host the telethon. It means a lot to all of us at Humana and The Humana Foundation to be a part of it.”

Since 2006, Humana has been a featured sponsor of Gaylord Entertainment’s Grand Ole Opry. The Grand Ole Opry Complex was among the buildings flooded during this worst flooding to hit Central Tennessee in more than 100 years. Last night’s telethon was held at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, the most famous former home of the Grand Ole Opry.

In Nashville and across Tennessee, Humana has nearly 300,000 health-plan members; the company has offices in Nashville, Memphis and Knoxville. Humana and The Humana Foundation made their flood-relief donation during the Music City Keep On Playin’ – A Benefit for Flood Relief telethon to the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, which is processing and distributing the telethon donations.
