Every year, country music star Tracy Lawrence puts together the Mission Possible Turkey Fry and Benefit Concert at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, Tennessee.
The goal of the event is to provide meals for the homeless across middle Tennessee, and in the 16 years of its existence, they’ve fried over 8,000 turkeys, and provided more than 90,000 meals for the homeless in the area, while also raising more than $600,000 to the Nashville Rescue Mission.
With that being said, Lawrence has officially announced the 17th annual event, slated for November 22nd.
For the benefit concert, Gary Allan and Travis Denning will be performing, and Lawrence has big plans for this year’s event, setting a record goal of 1,200 turkeys.
He expressed his excitement:
“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.
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.”
Last year, the event raised $175,000, the largest sum ever in its 16 year existence thus far.
The Mission Possible Turkey Fry and Benefit Concert has featured stars like Tim McGraw, Luke Combs, Chris Young, Lainey Wilson, Justin Moore, Cole Swindell, and more in the past.
