Jamey Johnson, Bobby Bare and Tony Joe White Raise $42,000 at “Whiskey Bread Pudding” Benefit Concert


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.”

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.
