Jamey Johnson’s 5th Annual Golf Tournament and Benefit Concert Raises $72,000

randy-edited-webNikki Mitchell Foundation (NMF) hosted Jamey Johnson’s fifth annual homecoming golf tournament and concert at the Cottonwood Golf Course in Montgomery, Ala., Oct. 9. Bringing some levity to an otherwise serious sport, the tournament featured activities such as shooting off a mattress, archery drives, shot carts and a ball launcher. The all-day event featured celebrity guests and ended with heartfelt performances by Grammy-nominated country star Jamey Johnson, Alison Krauss, LeeAnn Womack, Randy Houser, Jerrod Neimann and other friends. Country legend Randy Travis made an appearance on stage and stood beside Jamey as the latter sang Randy’s songs.

“I’m so grateful to my friends for donating their time to fight pancreatic cancer,” Jamey Johnson said. “This is important to me because I’ve lost so many friends to pancreatic cancer in the last few years.”

“Nikki Mitchell was one of the most incredible women to walk this earth, and anyone who knew her would say the same thing,” said Joanna Ott of Carter’s Chord, who has performed at NMF events. “She touched so many lives. Pancreatic cancer took hers too soon, as it does so many people. The foundation donates money to research for early detection and the cure of pancreatic cancer. It’s a great cause and her legacy lives on through it.”

Nikki Mitchell Foundation is dedicated to seeking and supporting the most breakthrough data available for the early detection and cure of pancreatic cancer. Not tied to any one hospital, NMF supports the most promising research while maintaining a focus on awareness and patient support. NMF actively promotes a special emphasis on prevention and the patient’s’ preferences in determining their care.

Nikki’s friends, Jamey Johnson, Bobby Bare, and Tony Joe White came together in a rare intimate setting, Sept. 21 at the Franklin Theatre, for a night of music, song, and stories.

Nikki Mitchell Foundation (NMF) president Rhonda Miles said, “NMF recently celebrated our three-year anniversary and we are excited about our growth.”

“Nikki’s musician friends have graciously and unselfishly given of their time and financial support to help propel this organization forward. Without our artists and their generosity, we couldn’t do this,” Miles said. “This year, we are donating funds to research and our direct patient services program Bridge of Wings, where we provide patients with gas cards or Uber rides to treatment, monthly Blue Apron meals, house cleanings, and even prescription co-pays. All these things seem small and simple, but when you are battling pancreatic cancer, they are huge. We know Nikki would be proud of our progress and the way we are bridging her giving spirit with the patient’s road to a cure.”
