The event proceeds will go toward supporting the 2009 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Man and Woman of the Year Campaign, a competition that nominates a select group of candidates who compete locally, raising money for LLS through a variety of events over a 10-week period.
Finnegan created Karaoke For A Cure as his signature fundraiser when he was nominated as a Man of the Year candidate in 2008. It was such a success, featuring many of his fellow Titans and country music celebrities, Finnegan decided to make it an annual event.
The evening will be emceed by Storme Warren, host of GAC Television, and will include appetizers, drinks, a unique silent auction with one-of-a-kind items and, of course, guaranteed laughter. Last year’s event included appearances by RCA recording artist Chuck Wicks and various Titans players such as Rob Bironas, Tony Brown, Keith Bulluck, Casey Cramer, Ryan Fowler, Vincent Fuller, Nick Harper, Chris Hope, Jevon Kearse, Josh Stamer, David Thornton and Kyle Vanden Bosch.
Finnegan was nominated last year as a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man & Woman of the Year after taking a leadership role in the charity’s “Light the Night Walk.”
He was also named a Titans Community All-Star in 2008 due to his involvement with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Special Olympics of Middle Tennessee. Finnegan hosts an annual holiday dinner at LP Field for families from those charities. In addition, he donates $50 to LLS and Special Olympics for every tackle he makes during the season. He regularly makes appearances at various schools, community centers and charitable events.
To further his philanthropic efforts, Finnegan has just launched his own foundation, The ARK 31 Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to serving children with special needs and disabilities throughout the Middle Tennessee area.
