Sports And Music Celebrities Lend A Hand To Benefit The Nashville Rescue Mission

With Thanksgiving just days away, Country music artist Tracy Lawrence is set to host the sixth annual “Mission PossibleTurkey Fry on Tuesday, November 22 from 8:00am to 3:00pm to benefit the Nashville Rescue Mission.

This year Lawrence is getting help from his sports and entertainment celebrity friends that will include 3 Doors Down frontman Brad Arnold, Titans football players Rob Bironas, Daniel Graham, Jordan Babinaeux, Titans Cheerleaders, Restless Heart, American Idol’s Lacey Brown, The Roys, The McClymonts, and others.

The sixth annual event will be held in the parking lot of the Nashville Rescue Mission. During the day, celebrities will join Lawrence in an effort to help prepare and fry more than 500 turkeys that will serve more than 7,000 meals this holiday season.

"The Nashville Rescue Mission is a blessing to our community,” said Lawrence. “Each year I am humbled by the outpouring of support from friends who give their time to be part of the turkey fry, which allows us the opportunity to help raise awareness of the great services that the Nashville Rescue Mission provides everyday to the homeless and those in need."

Since the launch of the “Mission Possible” Turkey Fry, Lawrence and his friends have donated more than 5,000 turkeys, serving almost 35,000 meals and raised more than $100,000 for the Nashville Rescue Mission.

The public is invited to come by and watch the event. The sixth annual “Mission Possible” Turkey Fry is free and open to the public (although donations to the Nashville Rescue Mission are requested).

Sponsorship partners include Kroger, Blue Rhino – Propane, Back Yard Burgers, Ink on Paper, 4 Season Coaches, Lowes, and Richards and Southern.
