The City of Brentwood Supports Students’ Success

The City of Brentwood is serious about its students’ success and puts its money where its mouth is. Over the past three decades, the City of Brentwood has given more than $5.5 million to Brentwood schools located within the Williamson County system. These funds are used for everything from textbooks and technology to special projects and programs. This year, Brentwood presented representatives from 12 Brentwood schools with checks for $239,100, $14,100 more than last year. Thank you!

Heroes in Heels Fashion Show Benefits Survivors of Breast Cancer

On Tuesday, Oct. 23 at The Factory in Franklin, breast cancer survivors and those still battling the disease strut their stuff on the catwalk, modeling the latest fall fashions from Dillard’s of Green Hills. But there’s more than just beautiful clothes on the line here; there’s a worthy cause to support: Maryland Farms’ After Breast Cancer Program (ABC).  
ABC provides comprehensive exercise, nutrition and wellness services free of charge to breast cancer patients and survivors. It’s a 16-week program in which each woman receives lymphedema education and screening, group exercise with fellow survivors led by a Pink Ribbon-certified personal trainer, meetings with a registered dietitian and access to small groups for emotional support. Plus, there’s also free use of the YMCA facilities and group fitness classes. The cost is $750 per survivor, and that’s where you come in. $750 is the price for a table for eight at the fashion show. Half tables for four and general admission are available as well. For more information, contact Chelsea Spence at cspence@ymcamidtn.org or call 615.373.2900 ext. 72119.  

Let a Billion Flowers Bloom: Join the Walk Against Alzheimer’s

What better way to take a stand against the scourge of Alzheimer’s than by walking in support of a cure? And what better location to take that walk than Nashville’s Walk of Fame Park, the place where our memories of Music City’s music legends are embedded in concrete and surrounded by gardens? On Oct. 27, the Alzheimer’s Association holds its annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Registration is at 8 a.m., and the walk starts at 8:30 a.m. Carry a flower to represent your connection to a loved one with Alzheimer’s, a disease that has no cure—yet. Imagine as you walk with others, flowers held aloft, that someday those flowers will represent Alzheimer’s survivors. Help make that beautiful day happen by joining the world’s largest fundraiser to fight this disease.
