AUBURN, Ala. - As much as Stacy Brown enjoyed listening to Kenny Chesney at the inaugural Music and Miracles Superfest last April, the greater payoff happened four months later when she presented a $200,000 check to fund research at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center.
“We’ve been given a platform that we actually get to impact lives,” said Brown, founder of the Chicken Salad Chick franchise. “We get to put checks into the hands of scientists who are going to affect research. That feels amazing that we know exactly where the funds that we raise are going.”
With her husband, Kevin, who died of colon cancer five months before the first concert, Brown created the Chicken Salad Chick Foundation to fight cancer and hunger.
