Mitchell Tenpenny And Friends Raise $92K For 10Penny Fund
It’s always nice to see when an artist uses their platform for good and to help raise awareness for something near and dear to their heart. It’s even more special when they can get their friends and family involved. A good example of this is Mitchell Tenpenny’s 10Penny Fund.
Earlier this week Tenpenny held his second annual Cornhole Tournament. It took place in the parking lot of Sony Music Publishing on Music Row in Nashville, Tennessee.
The country hitmaker’s event raised a total of $92,322.50 this year for The 10Penny Fund. The organization “invests in sustainable + meaningful programs that motivate patients, encourage healing, + build a community of support.”
Tenpenny created The 10Penny Fund in 2018 from personal experience. He lost his father to cancer a few years prior and his mother, Debbie Tenpenny, is also a cancer survivor.
“$92,322.50. I am blown away. This is for anyone who has needed hope or felt the hurt that cancer can bring to families. Thank you to every sponsor & everyone who donated. We did a great thing together,” Mitchell Tenpenny wrote on Instagram.
Fellow country singers in attendance included Chris Young, Ashley Cooke, Adam Doleac, Filmore, LANCO, Michael Ray, Lily Rose, Alana Springsteen, Matt Stell, and Tenpenny’s wife, Meghan Patrick. The winning cornhole team of the day was Tenpenny and partner Devin Dawson.
Several companies helped Tenpenny raise funds this year, including Nashville’s David Yurman and Love Your Melon even created a custom M10 beanie. If you’re interested in donating to the cause, you can click here for more information.
The “We Got History” singer is currently finishing up his time opening on Jason Aldean’s “Highway Desperado Tour.” Tenpenny will hit the road as an opening act for Jordan Davis’ Damn Good Time World Tour and join Luke Combs on the Growin’ Up And Gettin’ Old Tour stadium dates in 2024.
