Local nonprofit Special Kids prepares for one of the organization's largest fundraisers of the year the Special Kids Annual Friendraiser Banquet on September 4. The event is to be held at World Outreach Church in Murfreesboro with guest performer, Gordon Mote, blind pianist for Bill Gaither's southern gospel band (above is a video of a Gordon Mote recording session).
"The community has really banded together in support of this event," said Kaitlin Gay, Special Kids Marketing Specialist. "Tables are selling quickly, sponsors are in, and the momentum is building as the time closes in."
The Ramsey Family Foundation and Demos' Restaurant will present the event accompanied by supporting sponsors Adams Place, Murfreesboro Medical Clinic and Surgicenter, and Ben Phillips with Northwestern Mutual. Underwriter sponsors include Tri-Star Title and Escrow, TNT Battery, Tennessee Pediatrics, and Beverly Davis with LPL Financial. Demos' Restaurant will provide a delicious dinner for the expected 550 guests who will be treated with one of the largest silent auctions at the event organized by the Special Kids banquet committee. Auction prizes include an autographed fiddle by Charlie Daniels, an American Girl Doll, tickets to Wild Wilderness at the Smokies, and other items from local shops and stores.
Tables of eight are still available for $800 or individual seats for $100. Proceeds from the event help children with special needs receive therapy and nursing services at Special Kids.
