Following the success of Nashville’s inaugural Kiss Breast Cancer Goodbye Benefit Concert on Oct. 24 at the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Joseph Family Foundation recently presented a $167,000 donation to Susan G. Komen.
The event featured appearances from Dolly Parton, Dennis Quaid, Artimus Pyle, LOCASH, Captain Sandy Yawn, Collin Raye, and many others. Breast cancer survivors and the powerful songwriters behind the song, “Pink,” took the stage to educate and honor those affected by the disease, and VIP ticket holders enjoyed a silent auction and cocktail reception before the benefit concert began.
Parton was greeted by a standing ovation as she closed out the show with a once-in-a-lifetime performance featuring never before heard personal stories, jokes, and behind the scenes insight into the legend’s songwriting process.
Development Director of Tennessee for Susan G. Komen, Joshua Daniel, says: “$167,000 is so much money. You would be shocked as to how many lives $20,000 can save… Just imagine what an impact this is going to make.”
Kiss Breast Cancer Goodbye 2022 will be held on Oct. 23, 2022 at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s CMA Theater.
