On March 10th, the annual TJ Martell Honors Gala took place at the beautiful, new Omni Hotel in Nashville. We were able to catch up with Charles “Chip” Esten (Deacon from ABC’s ‘Nashville’), Darius Rucker, Jake Owen, Randy Owen, and Blue Sky Riders.
The T.J. Martell Honors Gala is one of Nashville’s most high profile annual fundraisers which brings together celebrities with business, medical, sports and entertainment industry leaders to raise awareness for innovative cancer research. This year’s honorees, which were announced in January, are Nashville real estate visionary Mark Bloom, music industry icons Dale Morris and Mike Dungan, entrepreneur Beth Dortch Franklin and cancer research pioneer Scott Hiebert.
Check out the video with the Red Carpet interviews and watch through to the very end! I think I found my new tag line thanks to Kenny Loggins! Check it out, it’s a fun watch! A fun night was had by all for a great cause!
About the T.J. Martell Foundation
The T.J. Martell Foundation is the music industry’s largest foundation that funds innovative medical research focused on finding cures for leukemia, cancer and AIDS. The T.J. Martell Foundation was founded in 1975 by music industry executive Tony Martell and his colleagues, in loving memory of his son, T.J., who died of leukemia. The Foundation has provided more than $260 million for research at top hospitals in the United States. The Foundation sources and supports early-stage research projects aimed at developing more effective clinical treatments for patients which otherwise might not be funded. In Nashville, the T.J. Martell Foundation funds the Frances Williams Preston laboratories at the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center. For additional information, visit www.TJMartell.org.
