Tracy Lawrence will be frying up turkeys again this Thanksgiving to help the homeless across Middle Tennessee at his 17th annual Mission:Possible Turkey Fry & Benefit Concert at the Wildhorse Saloon on Nov. 22.
Since its inception, Mission:Possible has fried over 8,000 turkeys, provided more than 90,000 meals to the homeless across Middle Tennessee, and raised over $600,000 to Nashville Rescue Mission.
“Over the last 17 years we have served about 64,000 meals and touched countless people’s lives. When we first started frying a few turkeys, I never thought we’d fry more than a dozen or two, let alone be raising hundreds of thousands of dollars while doing it,” Lawrence reflects. “I’m proud of how this event has grown and I’m thankful to have others in the community willing to participate to make it what it is today.”
In 2021, the annual Thanksgiving week concert raised $175,000–the largest sum raised through the Turkey Fry event to date.
Following the success of the Turkey Fry & Benefit Concert series, Mission:Possible launched an annual Celebrity Classic Golf Tournament in 2020. The springtime fundraiser has raised more than $800,000 towards various Middle Tennessee homeless charities in just two short years.
