Craig Wiseman And Friends’ ‘Stars For Second Harvest’ Raises $140K

Screen Shot 2015-06-12 at 10.00.27 AMThe 11th annual Stars For Second Harvest was held Tuesday night (June 9) at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The event supports efforts to solve hunger issues in Middle Tennessee.

Taking the stage for the songwriters round with Wiseman were Rodney Clawson, Sarah Buxton, Chris Tompkins, and Matt Dragstrem. The night also included performances by Cole Swindell, Dierks Bentley and ABC Nashville’s Chris Carmack, Lennon and Maisy and Charles Esten.

This year, the concert raised more than $140,000. And with a personal contribution from host Craig Wiseman and his friends, the annual event has raised over one million dollars total for the cause.

“All the generous funds raised will go to feed hungry children, seniors and families in Middle Tennessee,” said Nancy Keil-Culbertson, Senior Vice President of External Affairs at Second Harvest. “We are so thankful for our partnerships with Craig Wiseman and O’Charley’s and their commitment to our mission to feed hungry people and solve hunger issues in our community.”

“Through a fun-filled event with the best names in music, we are able to make a real difference in the lives of so many who just hope for a meal,” said Wiseman. “We have incredible support from the artists, from our sponsor O’Charley’s and the amazing fans.”
