MURFREESBORO – “Friday, September 8 was a beautiful night for an end of summer party!” announced Child Advocacy Center Director Sharon De Boer. “Thank you to everybody who attended and sponsored the Child Advocacy Center’s 6th annual Light Up the Night event.” 

Guests celebrated all night at Oakland’s Mansion, Murfreesboro. They sipped cocktails, ate delicious hors d’oeuvres and drinks from local restaurants and vendors, had professional caricatures made, and bid on amazing silent auction items generously donated for the event, including a 2-night stay in Gatlinburg. All proceeds from the silent auction and ticket sales went towards financially supporting crisis intervention services for Rutherford and Cannon County child abuse victims and their families.
