Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant recently presented a check for $623 to local nonprofit organization Tucker’s House, as a result of the restaurant’s fundraising campaign last month.
The down-home, Southern style eatery pledged to donate a portion of the day’s sales on May 10 in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Tucker’s House, which provides assistance to families of children with disabilities through specialized retrofitting resources to meet their needs and to make their homes accessible and safe environments.
In true Puckett’s form, live music and community were key elements of the campaign. Guests were treated to an evening show by Jesse Kramer, and representatives from Tucker’s House — as well as a local family who has benefited directly from its work — were present throughout the day to speak to diners about the cause that their purchases helped to support. Children diners were also given the opportunity to show their creativity on coloring pages, which were put together as books of encouragement for the children that Tucker’s House currently serves.
Andy Marshall and Rachel Layton, CEO and Marketing Director of A. Marshall Family Foods, respectively, along with several members of the Puckett’s Gro. team, presented the check and coloring books to Tucker’s House Founder and Executive Director, Sunny Rosanbalm, and its Volunteer Coordinator, Lori Grimes.

About Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant
With locations in downtown Franklin, downtown Nashville, downtown Columbia, downtown Chattanooga and downtown Murfreesboro, the Puckett’s roots go way back to the 1950s, and a little grocery store in the village of Leiper’s Fork, Tenn. Ever since then, we’ve been focused on providing friends new and old with great food and Southern hospitality.
When it comes down to it, Puckett’s is a community kitchen, with live pickin’ performances just a few feet from your table. Authentic comfort food—barbecue smoked slow ‘n’ low over cherry wood, the home-cooked sides, even a few upscale dishes—is what Puckett’s aims for you to remember.
