Following the success of Nashville’s inaugural Kiss Breast Cancer Goodbye Benefit Concert and VIP Cocktail Hour on Sunday, October 24, 2021 at the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Joseph Family Foundation presented a $167,000 donation to Susan G. Komen.
The intimate event featured Dolly Parton, Dennis Quaid, Artimus Pyle, LOCASH, Captain Sandy Yawn, Linda Davis, Collin Raye, CJ Solar and many others. Breast cancer survivors and the powerful songwriters behind the hit song, “Pink,” took the stage to educate and honor those affected by this horrible disease. VIP ticket holders enjoyed a luxury silent auction and cocktail reception before the benefit show began.
Parton was greeted by a standing ovation as she closed out the show with a once-in-a-lifetime performance featuring never before heard personal stories, jokes, and behind the scenes insight into the legend’s songwriting process.
“I am thrilled to be performing some of my greatest hits with my friend and long-time band leader, Kent Wells, for such a worthy cause,” Parton shares. “Breast cancer has touched every single one of us in some capacity, so I am thankful for Donna Wells asking me to be part of this event. I hope we can raise some good money and help fight this horrible disease, so bring your checkbooks.”
As usual, the people of Nashville listened. After endless anticipation, The Joseph Family Foundation presented Susan G. Komen with a check donation for $167,000.
Joshua Daniel, Development Director of Tennessee for Susan G. Komen, said, “$167,000 is so much money. You would be shocked as to how many lives $20,000 can save… Just imagine what an impact this is going to make.”
Kiss Breast Cancer Goodbye 2022 will be held on October 23, 2022 at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s world-renowned CMA Theater. Upcoming event details have not yet been announced but will be published soon at www.kissbreastcancergoodbye.com.
