Mercy Girls to Join “Jeff Fisher & Friends” This Saturday for Final Farewell

Mercy girls at last year's game
For the past 10 years, the Jeff Fisher & Friends Charity Softball Game has been a highlight for Mercy Ministries’ staff and residents. This event has raised funds for Mercy Ministries as well as several other local charities. This Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 7:00 p.m., our Nashville residents and staff will join thousands of fans at Greer Stadium for the “Final Farewell.” We are so excited to show our support for Coach Jeff Fisher while cheering on some of our favorite Tennessee Titans players as they compete on the softball field.

At this year’s charity softball game, Coach Fisher will be joined by NFL greats such as Kerry Collins, Chris Simms, Eddie George, Blaine Bishop, Chris Sanders, and Kevin Dyson. Predators Assistant Coach, Brent Peterson; Predators Play-by-play announcer, Pete Webber; and Contemporary Christian Singer, Michael W. Smith will also be taking the field.


Nancy Alcorn and Jeff Fisher
Coach Jeff Fisher is a great personal friend of Mercy Ministries Founder and President, Nancy Alcorn, who is an avid sports fan and Titans supporter. Coach Fisher and his family are longtime supporters of Mercy, personally donating to Mercy each time the Titans brought home a victory. The break room at Mercy Ministries’ corporate office is dedicated to the Titans and their years of success under Head Coach Jeff Fisher and is filled with photos and memorabilia. Check out these photos of the break room and some of our favorite times with Coach Fisher:






Nancy was honored to be interviewed by Nashville’s NBC affiliate, WSMV, about Coach Fisher’s decision to end his run with the Tennessee Titans football franchise. She said of his decision, “He deserves a rest. He works harder than just about anybody I know.” Click here to read more.
