Tracy Lawrence‘s 17th annual Mission:Possible Turkey Fry and Benefit Concert was a huge success, frying a record-breaking 1,200 turkeys that were distributed throughout Middle Tennessee. Overall, the event provided 9,600 meals to those in need during the Thanksgiving holiday.
The day kicked off at the Nashville Fairgrounds with over 250 volunteers who helped fry the turkeys. Lawrence was joined by Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn, along with helping hands from Tennessee Senator Bill Hagerty, Nashville Mayor John Cooper, Phil Vassar, Deana Carter, Clint Black, and Lee Greenwood.
Following the mass turkey fry, Lawrence was joined by Gary Allan, Travis Denning, Alexandra Kay and Halfway to Hazard for a sold-out benefit at Wildhorse Saloon that raised another record-breaking $250,000 towards the Nashville Rescue Mission.
“This was an incredible day from start to finish,” Lawrence shares. “To step back and think about how this started as just a few friends and a dozen fryers in a parking lot—to what it is now—is truly incredible. There are so many people that go into this event and I’m just so grateful we can all come together and support this cause.”
The yearly event has now provided more than 73,000 meals to the homeless across Middle Tennessee and raised over $850,000 for Nashville Rescue Mission.
