“Traler Park” Show Raises $59,000 for NMF

On June 18, 2019, country music artists Jamey Johnson, Lee Brice, Rob Hatch, Dallas Davidson, Jerrod Niemann and Randy Houser took the stage at the Franklin Theatre in Franklin, TN. Calling their crew “Traler Park,” these long-time friends and musical collaborators took the stage to share both their music and stories.

The show hosted over 300 guests, and debuted Nikki Mitchell Foundation’s latest PSA. The video had interviews with pancreatic cancer patients, family members and a patient advocate, giving insight into the foundation’s work. The foundation raised over $59,000, which goes to programs to prevent, detect and cure pancreatic cancer.

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.
