On Tuesday (11/20), Tracy Lawrence and friends celebrated another successful year frying more than 500 turkeys that served thousands on the Thanksgiving holiday.
Since 2006, Tracy Lawrence “Mission Possible” Turkey Fry has brought in an estimated 6,500 turkeys and provided more than 40,000 meals to the Nashville Rescue Mission feed the homeless during the holidays.
“I am blessed to have so many friends who share the same passion that I do for those in need during the holidays,” said Tracy Lawrence. “From volunteers who labored all day to the person who came by to drop off a turkey, they all have contributed to the success of this event and I am very thankful for them.”
Teams of volunteers and sponsors such as Sam’s Club, NFL Titans, and members of the U.S. Coast Guard all worked together to accomplish the mission. The NFL Titans cheerleaders cheered as people came to make donations while Lawrence’s music friends cooked turkeys for the cause.
Sponsors who helped make the event as success included; Sam’s Club, Lou Ana – Oil, Blue Rhino – Propane, and the Rankam Group, Margaritaville Restaurant, Ink on Paper, and Breeze coaches.
