“I grew up in Nashville attending concerts in most of the city’s many venues, but the dream to have the opportunity to headline the Ryman Auditorium seems too surreal,” shared Mitchell. “We have many special plans for this show and I’m grateful in advance to all my fans who will join us in supporting a wonderful cause that unfortunately all too many families understand.”
Mitchell created the 10Penny Fund in 2018 to provide inspiration and to support programs that help build community, motivate patients and encourage healing for people facing cancer and their loved ones. Mitchell’s outreach grew from his own personal experiences dealing with his father’s cancer and what his family learned through the process. In 2019, he teamed up with Sarah Cannon, the Cancer Institute of HCA Healthcare, to renovate the ‘Family Room’ at the American Cancer Society Memorial Foundation Hope Lodge in downtown Nashville.
