BRIDGES of Williamson County invites all to attend their 8th annual BRIDGES Gala to be held Saturday, September 15, at 7 p.m., at The Resident’s Club at Westhaven. All proceeds from the event will benefit BRIDGES, Williamson County’s only domestic violence shelter, and go towards annual operating expenses. Their mission is “to serve area women and children traumatized by domestic violence, ensuring a safe transition to successful independent community living through education, intervention and case management.”

This year’s theme “Dancing Under the Stars” brings new enthusiasm for a different kind of evening. Guests can enjoy fine dining from local restaurants, beautiful surroundings at the Resident’s Club and great music from the “Ron Shuff Review,” a local favorite. Linda Crockett Jackson, Executive Director, is especially excited about the new venue and hopes it will help “raise awareness of Bridges’ programs and services to more people within Williamson County.” 

The beautiful venue, great live music, and delicious food stations will provide a wonderful evening of dining and dancing under the stars.  There will also be a silent auction including artwork, gift certificates, sports memorabilia, and much more! Tickets are $80 per person or $150 per couple and can be purchased by calling 615.714.0150. For more information about BRIDGES of Williamson County visit their website at
