Noted Philanthropist and Country Music legend, Tracy Lawrence, presented Nashville Rescue Mission with a check last week for $148,233.00, which was raised through his 12th Annual MISSION:POSSIBLE Turkey Fry and 3rd Annual Concert.
"We are so thankful to our sponsors and the citizens of Nashville for their continued support of this event and we are already making plans for next year, says Lawrence.
"It is an incredible honor for Nashville Rescue Mission to be the benefactor of these efforts," said Glenn Cranfield, president and CEO of Nashville Rescue Mission. "A special thank you goes to Tracy, his team, and everyone involved with the Mission:Possible Turkey Fry and Concert for all your time and hard work.”
The MISSON:POSSIBLE blueprint is spreading to other cities, as Dallas Life Mission in Texas celebrated their second turkey fry and Louisville Rescue Mission in Kentucky held their first turkey fry and concert this year. Both cities reported successful and safe events. Additional cities are slated to come on board in 2018, as the new 501-C3 gains momentum across the U.S..
