More than 200 guests flooded into BRIDGES of Williamson County’s Arty Party in Franklin, Tennessee. With the aide from Arbonne International’s Local Independent Consultants, the Arty Party was a great success. In its seventh year, the Arty Party raised more than $43,000 to aide the domestic shelter.
On Sept. 15 at The Factory at Franklin, in beautiful Franklin, TN, cards cascaded across various blackjack and poker tables as BRIDGES supporters usegambled to win the grand prize of a $2,500 trip voucher. Guests were given cute cups filled with fake money for the casino as they entered the party, and fun was as easy as the roll of the dice.
BRIDGES supporters danced to band Roadmaster’s upbeat tunes, sipped on drinks and ate delicious food from Constant Craving Caterers, Del Rio Wine & Spirits, Off the Grill, Puckett’s, Speary’s and The Coffee Beanery.
In addition to the food and music, guests also had the opportunity to bid in a spicy, silent auction. With items ranging from a historic, civil war cannonball to a football signed by the Titan’s name to select Arbonne products. By the end of the night, Bridges raised a lot of financial support, and Matt Graves walked away as the grand prize winner with the $2,500 trip voucher.
All of the money raised will go directly to support the shelter. BRIDGES representatives said that they appreciated everyone who came out to support their organization. Among the local faces was Kimberly Malone-Haddox, owner of Shoe Boutique & Accessories pictured above, right.
