Country music star John Rich said the late conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh once donated $100,000 to St. Jude Children’s Hospital under the condition that his donation remain anonymous.
Limbaugh was known for his generosity, often tipping thousands of dollars at restaurants. The radio host and his listeners also raised tens of millions of dollars over the years through his annual Leukemia and Lymphoma Cure-A-Thon for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of America.
Rich tweeted out an example of Limbaugh’s generosity after the radio host’s death was announced Wednesday.
Limbaugh’s wife, Kathryn, announced his death at the beginning of his Wednesday show: “Hello everyone, I know that I am most certainly not the Limbaugh that you tuned in to listen to today. I, like you, very much wish Rush was behind this golden microphone right now, welcoming you to another exceptional three hours of broadcasting. For over 32 years, Rush has cherished you, his loyal audience, and always looked forward to every single show. It is with profound sadness I must share with you directly that our beloved Rush, my wonderful husband, passed away this morning due to complications from lung cancer.”
When I was on Celebrity Apprentice, Rush Limbaugh made a donation of $100,000 dollars to St Jude Children's Hospital to support them, and my mission on the TV Show under the condition that he remained anonymous. I never said a word until now. He will be missed. #RIPRushLimbaugh— John Rich (@johnrich) February 17, 2021
