O’Charley’s and Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee will celebrate the 11th annual Stars For Second Harvest hosted by Craig Wiseman on Tuesday, June 9, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. Nashville-based O’Charley’s is the benefit show’s presenting sponsor for the 11th consecutive year, with acclaimed hit songwriter Craig Wiseman as event host.

Past special guests have included Vince Gill, Florida Georgia Line, Keith Urban, Jake Owen, Luke Bryan, Nelly and Dierks Bentley.

“Stars for Second Harvest is one of my favorite events each year,” said Craig Wiseman, acclaimed songwriter and event host. “I am honored to be part of such a tremendous benefit to help to raise awareness for the hungry in Middle Tennessee. We are proud to have O’Charley’s along as our presenter for the 11th straight year. Their continued significant support has made this event possible and provided more than 3 million to children, families and seniors. My goal this year is to raise at least $150,000, which get us even closer to the 1 million dollar total mark in our involvement with Stars for Second Harvest.”

“Nashville has been home to O’Charley’s for more than 40 years,” said Hazem Ouf, president and CEO of American Blue Ribbon Holdings, the Nashville-based parent company of O’Charley’s. “It is important to us as a company that we give back to Middle Tennessee and take care of our friends and neighbors. It’s been deeply rewarding to be the presenter of this event benefitting Second Harvest since its inception. We look forward to another special evening led by Craig Wiseman that will benefit those throughout our community who need it most.”

Proceeds from the concert benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee in their efforts to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in our community. Jaynee Day, president and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee says, “We are excited to kick off another decade of the Stars for Second Harvest partnership with Craig Wiseman and O’Charley’s. We are beyond grateful for the awareness and support this show has brought to hungry people in need.”
