The annual celebrity event’s purpose is to seek support and awareness for homelessness organizations across Middle Tennessee. Following the successful event, Lawrence went to visit the Middle Tennessee charities to hand-deliver the donations.
“It was a little overwhelming.. we handed out some pretty substantial checks,” Lawrence describes the heartwarming day, “It’s an amazing thing to be able to give that kind of stuff to people that are going to do such wonderful things with it.”
The 12 organizations already supported by the Mission:Possible event include: Safe Haven, Oasis, Jesus Provisions Ministries, Park Center, Brooks House, Open table, Shower Up!, Village of Glencliff, People Loving Nashville, NRM, The Bridge and Room In The Inn.
Taking place at Old Hickory Country Club in Tennessee, the tournament brought together a roster of some of Nashville’s hottest Country stars and legacy acts including: Kid Rock, Charles Kelley, Jake Owen, Jordan Davis, HARDY, ERNEST, Deana Carter, Mitchell Tenpenny, Jamey Johnson, Colt Ford and many others. The springtime staple charity event was also attended by a few of sport’s biggest names: John Daly, Brett Hull and Rex Ryan. The tournament also invited CMT along for special access that aired during their Hot 20 Countdown.
“Having the golf tournament raise $430,000 in just the second year is truly incredible,” shared Lawrence, “My peers really showed up this year and I am so thankful for their support in helping Mission:Possible. It’s because of them we are able to help our community is such a large way.”
