Melissa Goodwin, a former vice-president at the T.J. Martell Foundation, has been charged with wire fraud in connection with an alleged scheme to defraud the charity out of $3.7 million.

The Department of Justice alleged the 55-year-old used the foundation’s money to purchase expensive and rare alcohols, plane tickets, hotel stays as part of a multimillion-dollar ticketing scheme.

The T.J. Martell Foundation – which battles life-threatening illnesses – long has been a favorite charity for Music Row, often tapping country music’s biggest names to serve as performers and honorees for its annual Nashville Honors Gala fundraiser.
