Tracy Lawrence's Mission Possible Turkey Fry
Award winnning country artist Tracy Lawrence will host his Mission Possible Turkey Fry on Tuesday, November 23, 2010 to benefit the Nashville Rescue Mission.
“The Nashville Rescue Mission works hard to care for the homeless and rehabilitate those working through personal issues such as addiction or abuse. Our mission is to raise awareness of the services provided by the Nashville Rescue Mission to the homeless, as well as to remind the community of the ‘everyday’ need to support our local Mission and neighbors all year-round. This event is one of my favorites of the year. It’s a true and heartfelt gesture by all; I’m in awe each year of the support from my friends and the community who come out to lend a hand, make a donation, and fry up some turkeys,” Lawrence said.
In addition to the country singer host, other celebrities will be joining in on the pre-Thanksgiving event to raise awareness for those who are less fortunate.
Since Mission Possible launched five years ago, Lawrence and his friends have donated more than 5,000 turkeys, provided nearly 35,000 meals for the homeless and funds raised have exceeded $100,000.
Hoping to stay consistent with numbers from past years, Lawrence anticipates the group of celebrity cooks will fry up more than 500 turkeys over the course of the day.
The Mission Possible Turkey Fry is open to the public - a gift of donation is appreciated.
