Every year of this event the goal is to strive to be better than the last, and this year did just that. Noted Philanthropist and Country Music legend, Tracy Lawrence, presented Nashville Rescue Mission with a check last week for $148,233.00, which was raised through his 12th Annual MISSION:POSSIBLE Turkey Fry and 3rd Annual Concert.
“We are so thankful to our sponsors and the citizens of Nashville for their continued support of this event and we are already making plans for next year, says Tracy.

“It is an incredible honor for Nashville Rescue Mission to be the benefactor of these efforts,” said Glenn Cranfield, president and CEO of Nashville Rescue Mission. “A special thank you goes to Tracy, his team, and everyone involved with the Mission:Possible Turkey Fry and Concert for all your time and hard work.”
The MISSON:POSSIBLE blueprint is spreading to other cities, as Dallas Life Mission in Texas celebrated their second turkey fry and Louisville Rescue Mission in Kentucky held their first turkey fry and concert this year. Both cities reported successful and safe events. Additional cities are slated to come on board in 2018, as the new 501-C3 gains momentum across the U.S.
If you reside or are near the Nashville area and want to keep up with the Rescue Mission for a donation or upcoming events go to their website. If you live in the Kentucky and Texas areas keep an eye out there as well. There is plenty of work to be done and a lot of good people doing it.
