The T.J. Martell Foundation bestowed its first-ever Sunshine Award to The Palm Restaurant’s Rae Krenn virtually yesterday (June 16). Music City’s “hostess with the mostess” was originally supposed to receive the award in April during the Nashville Comedy Festival, but due to the pandemic, the event was forced to cancel. Krenn received her recognition on a Zoom call, and during the virtual meet, more than 20 of her community friends “Zoomed-in” for her presentation, including former Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen, Butch Spyridon, Rod Essig, George Armistead, Jamie IsabelMarty Dickens and her son, Guy Krenn. The award was presented to Krenn onsite at The Palm by T.J. Martell Foundation board member Ben Jumper. Her daughter Sherrié Austin, husband Alf Krenn, and son-in-law Will Rambeaux were also present to help her celebrate the honor.
