The 9th Annual “Stars For Second Harvest” benefit concert raised $100,000 for Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. The June 4 concert at the Ryman Auditorium was headlined by Ronnie Dunn and Florida Georgia Line with a special appearance by Nelly, comedian Ralphie May and more. The event, combined with the live auction and several generous donations, helped to make this the most successful fundraising year.
Founder Craig Wiseman says, “When I got the numbers I couldn’t believe we finally did it! Since we started this show in 2005, it has been a goal of mine to get to $100,000 for Second Harvest. With help from all of the artists, and the continued help of O’Charleys, we finally reached that goal this year. Now I am raising that goal to $250,000!!”
In the last nine years, this event has raised $611,032 to feed hungry children, seniors, and families in Tennessee. Because each dollar provides four meals, the funds raised from the nine years of this benefit concert have provided Second Harvest with means to supply 2,444,128 meals.
This year’s benefit concert line-up included a songwriters round with Wiseman, Rhett Akins, Chris Tompkins, Sarah Buxton and a special performance from Dunn, who sang his iconic song “Believe.” Comedian May got the audience laughing before country duo Florida Georgia Line closed out the show, including an appearance from rapper Nelly.
