"Nashville Rising" will benefit the Community Foundation, which provides philanthropic services in Middle Tennessee. A statement from the couple reads: "The damage that we've seen to people's homes and the effect that the flooding has had on their lives is unimaginable. But we've seen the spirit of our community firsthand, as volunteers, church groups and our local business leaders rally to help."
