Journeys in Community Living will hold their Annual Community Awards Banquet and Silent Auction on August 23, 2012 from 5:30—8:00pm.  The auction begins at 5:30, with dinner beginning at 7 p.m.

During the program at the DoubleTree by Hilton on Old Fort Parkway in Murfreesboro, awards will be presented to volunteers, community leaders and businesses that have supported the nonprofit organization over the years.


“Community support has helped establish a residential facility for three clients with challenging health issues. It has also helped acquire “real world” employment for five clients with intellectual disabilities who had never worked outside their sheltered workshop”, says Vicki Baldwin, Development Coordinator. This year, Journeys in Community Living faces new challenges, including continuing quality services despite a significant decrease in overall funding, and the need to secure computer hardware and software funding in order to shift into a 21st century electronic record keeping system.

To help Journeys meet these challenges, purchase your tickets and attend this year’s event. Tickets are $35 per person or $300 for a table of 10 people. You may purchase tickets online ( or by calling 615-890-4389. If you would like to pay at the door on August 23rd, please call 615-890-4389.

To mail your payment, please mail a check for the total amount of your tickets (made payable to Journeys in Community Living) to: 1130 Haley Road, Murfreesboro, 37129).
