Mitchell Tenpenny took to social media today to surprise fans with a new initiative. The singer-songwriter was set to headline his first-ever show at the historic Ryman Auditorium, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, the show will have to be postponed to 10/10/21. In an effort to still make the day special, Tenpenny is launching a special campaign to raise funds and awareness for The 10Penny Fund.
“We are trying to raise $10,000 from this day to 10/10 (October 10th)… $10,000 for The 10Penny Fund,” he reveals. “If we do this, Sarah Cannon (Cancer Institute of HCA Healthcare) is going to double this amount. It’s going to help so many lives and fight cancer and this is very important to me, so let’s go out there and do this right now.”
The 10Penny Fund was started by Tenpenny himself in 2018 inspired by “personal experience and a sincere desire to provide inspiration and support to cancer patients beyond traditional medical treatment.”
To raise the funds by 10/10, Tenpenny will be playing two shows at The Listening Room in Nashville as well as offering a livestream, so fans from all over can safely tune in. In addition, fans will have the option to add a merchandise package to their ticket which includes a specially designed t-shirt that can be personalized to include the name of a loved one who has been affected by cancer. “Mine personally is going to be my dad and I think it’s going to be very cool to see all of these names and heroes on the back of it,” Tenpenny says in the announcement.
Additionally, fans can also add on a virtual meet & greet to get some one-on-one time with the budding star.
