21st Annual Wine Down Main Street Raises Over $156,000 for Local Youth
The 21st Annual Wine Down Main Street took place last Saturday, Nov. 5. This event welcomed guests from all over to stroll down Franklin’s historic Main Street while enjoying live entertainment and tasting wines from all around the world! Tickets included wine, beer, and food tastings from over 30 participating shops and restaurants. All proceeds from ticket sales benefitted the Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee (BGCMT).
For 119 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee has committed to helping local youth reach their full potential with programs tailored in academics, health, and character. This year’s Wine Down Main Street hosted over 1,800 guests and raised over $156,000 in support of local youth.
“Through our programs, youth increase engagement in school and show improvement in academics, as well as a reduction in Summer and COVID-19 slide which disproportionately impacts youth from low-income communities,” says Area Director Denise Carothers. “As we’ve adapted to continue to offer youth life-saving programs and outreach, as well as a safe place to go, you know, Whatever It Takes is more than just a motto for us – it’s the spirit we live by in delivering our mission.”
