AUBURN,
Ala. (March 15, 2016) – The Chicken Salad Chick Foundation has named
Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center (VICC) as one of the beneficiaries of
funds raised at the inaugural Music & Miracles Superfest.

The
mission of Music & Miracles Superfest is to bring the biggest
entertainers in America to one of the most notable venues in the
Southeast. Proceeds from the concert will be targeted to fighting cancer
and feeding the hungry.

Music & Miracles Superfest, Saturday, April 23, marks the kickoff for Kenny Chesney’s 2016 Tour. The only country artist on Billboard‘s Top 10 Touring Acts of the Last 25 Years, the man The Wall Street Journal deemed “The King of the Road” will be joined by six-time Country Music Association and
Academy of Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year
Miranda Lambert, Grammy-nominated newcomer Sam Hunt and hit-writer
driven breakout band Old Dominion.
 

Stacy Brown, President and Co-Founder of the Chicken Salad Chick Foundation, who lost her husband Kevin Brown (Co-Founder
of Chicken Salad Chick) to cancer last November, noted “Music &
Miracles Superfest was Kevin’s dream. While in the midst of his battle
against cancer, Kevin chose
not to ask ‘why me?’ but rather ‘why not?!’  Kevin asked boldly, ‘Why not start a Foundation? Why not have a concert at Jordan-Hare Stadium? Why not ask Kenny Chesney to play it? And why not
try and raise a million dollars in a single day to give to those who
are in need?’ Kevin will have the best seat in the house to watch this
dream come true on April 23.”

 
The
CSC Foundation Board identified Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, one of
the top 10 cancer centers in America in grant support, to be one of the
concert beneficiaries. As a leader in new discoveries in cancer
research, VICC’s
world-renowned
team of experts provides an integrated, personalized and
patient-centered approach to cancer care, including treatment, research,
support, education and outreach.
 
Scott
Hiebert, Ph.D., Associate Director of Basic Science Research and Shared
Resources at VICC, said, “We are so honored to be named one of the
beneficiaries of this one-of-a-kind concert. We thank Stacy Brown and
the entire CSC Foundation and Board for their belief in the innovative
work being done at VICC. We wake up every day and dream big as we strive
to make landmark discoveries and breakthroughs in cancer research. Our
goals align perfectly with Kevin Brown’s legacy and the mission of Music
& Miracles.”
