NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE– March 11, 2020 – In response to the recent EF-3 tornado that affected nearly 50 miles in Nashville in early March, the annual Southern Women’s Show is designating Friday, March 27 as ‘Nashville Strong Day’ and teaming up with local nonprofits and businesses to help support the recovering community. A portion of all event tickets sold onsite Friday will directly benefit the nonprofit Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee in assisting hundreds of locals who lost homes, belongings and businesses in the recent tornadoes. Additionally, the Show has added numerous donation opportunities throughout the weekend for the community to get involved in giving back.
In addition to the monetary donation from ticket sales, Southern Women’s Show Nashville has been designated as a drop-off location for the Community Resource Center. Much needed household necessities like personal hygiene products, infant needs like diapers and baby wipes, batteries, flashlights, tarps, cleaning products, towels and more will all be accepted onsite. As an organization that serves to support the immediate and long-term needs around the area, the Community Resource Center is dedicated to ensuring that no one is left unassisted.
Southern Women’s Show has also teamed up with two Nashville-based businesses to donate additional funds to provide relief. Anderson Design Group has designed an iconic tornado relief poster that will be on sale throughout the four-day event, with 50 percent of the proceeds going to Hands on Nashville, which works parallel to the City of Nashville to safely send volunteers into areas of need. In addition, @NashvilleTN will be onsite to sell their iconic ‘I Believe in Nashville’ t-shirts with 100 percent of the proceeds directly benefiting the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee as well.
“As part of the Nashville community for over 33 years, we are heartbroken to see the immense damage the tornadoes did to this city so near to our hearts,” said Stacy Abernethy, executive show manager of the Southern Women’s Show. “We know there is a lot of rebuilding ahead and we instantly wanted to find a way to give back and help in those efforts. We are extremely proud to partner with several local groups to assist those affected by this tragedy and provide a way for the community to come together and continue to lift each other up.”
