The inaugural Jump Jive Dinner Dance, held on February 14, was a resounding success, raising nearly $12,000 for CYMT! T.W. Frierson Contractor, Inc. was the Presenting Sponsor for this year’s event held at the Martin Center in Brentwood. Guests were treated to the sounds of Nashville’s hottest swing band, the Gnarly Parkers, and to the tastes of the Daily Dish. Thanks to our other sponsors, Nashville Golf and Athletic Club, Gabriel Media, Arrington Vineyards, and Elements Massage, Franklin, and to local artist Pam Padgett, who donated a beautiful painting for auction, specially commissioned for the event.
Special thanks go to the planning committee of Pam and John Padgett, Vicki and Gino DeSalvatore, Beth O’Connell, and Karol Mangione who did a fantastic job with the party.
Plans are underway for next year’s event. We hope you can join us!
