Tracy Lawrence Annual Turkey Fry Raises $63,000

Tracy Lawrence and a group of celebrity friends raised more than $63,000 for the Nashville Rescue Mission at the 10th Annual Mission: Possible Turkey Fry on Nov. 24. This year’s event included Lawrence’s first concert at City Winery with performances by Charlie Daniels, Halfway to Hazard, Lorrie Morgan, Darryl Worley and Brad Arnold of 3 Doors Down.

“Growing up for me, having a good meal commemorating the Thanksgiving holiday meant more than just satisfying your appetite,” Lawrence said. “It signified a time to reflect, count our blessings and share what we’re thankful for, so to have an opportunity to feed those in our area while helping them feel that sense of pride for feeding their families, well there’s no better feeling. Over the years this event has grown, and every year I am even more thankful to those who come together to make this such a success.”
