Are you looking for something unique to do this New Year’s Eve that also supports a worthy cause? Then, perhaps Franklin’s Pink Gala fits that bill for you.
The city of Franklin, just 22 miles outside of Nashville off I-65, is well known for its fundraisers. On the average, there are two or three of them each month. But, this special party provides funds for breast cancer patients throughout Williamson County.
The Pink Gala was founded in 2010 by Kelly Spalding, a breast cancer survivor who lost her mother to the disease, and refers to fighting breast cancer as “a marathon, not a sprint.” She also advises those battling the insidious monster that affects so many woman to “get a Breast Health Navigator who can guide you through the process.”
The Pink Gala is a black-tie optional event held in Liberty Hall at the popular Factory, that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This one-of-a-kind retail and entertainment complex is situated at 230 Franklin Road, nearby the nationally recognized Main Street of Franklin. Local cultural showcases and artisan goods are featured at the Factory.
Tickets for the Gala, that opens at 7:30pm on December 31, and ends at 1:00am on January 1, are $165 per person. Attractions for the evening include a dinner supplied by Catering and Events by Suzette, a silent auction, and the unique sounds of Burning Las Vegas’ dance music. This band features three female Singers, each with their own unique style, a tight horn section, and some of Nashville’s finest Musicians.
Additionally, a champagne toast at midnight, beer, wine, and signature cocktails will also be available, as are hotel packages for this event.
Pink boas can also be obtained at the Gala for $25. They come in either bright pink, in honor of a breast cancer survivor, or light pink, for those who have succumbed to the disease.
Proceeds for the boas support the Williamson Medical Center Foundation’s Breast Health Center. This facility was named a 2016 Woman’s Choice Award-winner as one of the best Breast Centers in the United States. Boas can be purchased online at ThePinkGala.com or through Kelly Spalding Designs at 915 Columbia Avenue, in Downtown Franklin.
