Last week, TNE’s team had a blast attending the Waiting for Wishes event that raises funds to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. NFL veteran, Super Bowl Champion and Football Analyst, Kevin Carter and co-host Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts hosted the 18th Annual Kevin Carter’s “Waiting for Wishes” Celebrity Waiters Dinner at The Palm Restaurant on April 16th. The celebrity-packed event was an exclusive, VIP evening where Carter and DeMarcus invited professional athletes, country music artists and various celebrities from all over the country to take over The Palm as servers before they head over to Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row for the Official After-Party – “Jammin’ with Jay DeMarcus & Friends.” This event screamed “Nashville”, and is one that we are thrilled we didn’t miss.
Stacie Standifer is no stranger to building empires in the community. Nashville native, she founded and built Lifestyles and several associated magazines and devoted her heart and soul to growing the publications for fifteen years. She ultimately sold the group and moved on to pursue other interests in a more elevated arena as her previous media outlet shifted to cover more mass-market territory under corporate direction and influence.
