I hope you own a pair of sunglasses, because the stars will be lighting up the stage at the Ryman Auditorium on Tuesday, June 4, 2013 during the Ninth Annual Stars for Second Harvest. The event is presented by O’Charley’s and will be hosted by acclaimed hit songwriter, Craig Wiseman. Additionally, the night will feature unplugged acoustic acts by noteworthy songwriters, a stand-up comedy routine from funny man, Ralphie May, and a performance by the hot new country music duo, Florida Georgia Line.
The proceeds from the event will serve to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is “to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in our community.” Since opening their doors in the late 70’s Second Harvest has consistently made a positive impact through their hard work and huge hearts. As one of the largest food distributors nationwide, in 2011-2012 their efforts made a tremendous impact by supplying over 16 million meals to children, adults and senior citizens suffering from hunger in 46 counties throughout Middle and West Tennessee. However, the need for support to feed the hungry is stronger than ever. USDA reported that nearly 14 million children residing in the United States are food insecure; and perhaps hitting even closer to home, additional reports stated in Tennessee one in every four children are considered food insecure. If you think these statistics are devastating, you are not alone. Over the last eight years numerous stars have participated in this event to help raise $511,032 for children, families and seniors in Tennessee suffering from hunger.
President and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, Jaynee Day, expresses her gratitude to their partners. “We are grateful for our partners that help put on a great show each year and we encourage all of our supporters and country music fans to attend and help speak out against hunger.” You don’t want to miss this annual event to benefit a terrific cause, so throw on your best shades and enjoy a night out with the Stars for Second Harvest!
