The Silent Auction and Speakeasy-styled Event Raised Over $110k to Support Tennessee Children.

 

NASHVILLE — Last Night, Nurture the Next hosted a silent auction and speakeasy-styled event at The Standard in downtown Nashville. Their event, “A Night with Nurture the Next,” raised over $110,000 for Tennessee children and families living in vulnerable situations. There was a special performance by musical guest Regi Wooten, of The Wooten Brothers. 

Nurture the Next is a non-profit organization and the state’s largest provider of in-home support services for vulnerable families. They also run Tennessee’s statewide domestic violence helpline and provide a wide range of additional free services for children and families. 

Kristen Davis, president and CEO of Nurture the Next, encouraged those in attendance to support those families that have disproportionally felt the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.

“I think we can all agree that parenting has been an even bigger challenge the past two years,” she said. “Now imagine trying to handle all of that while living in poverty, or losing your job, or not having a support system near you to lean on. That’s sadly the reality for a lot of the families we serve and have continued to work with through the challenges of this pandemic.”

“Whether it’s the rising costs of diapers and car seats, the shortage of baby formula, or just trying to keep their children safe, our families continue to endure serious challenges,” she continued. “However, they’re committed to building a better future for their children and they need our help—and your support—to get it done.”
