17th Annual Button Ball 2023

August 26, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Button Ball Nashville, TN

Join us for a glamorous evening of dining, dancing, and donations – all to support a great cause. Button Ball will feature fun and meaning – all while raising money to provide services to children and their families struggling with sexual and significant physical abuse, or some other form of trauma. Davis House promises an experience you’ll talk about long after the evening is over.

The name Button Ball derives from the story of our “Button Jar.” After their forensic interview, each child chooses a unique button that represents them and places it in the jar, which holds the thousands of buttons of children we have served in the past. The jar is inscribed with “You Are Not Alone”—a message we think is crucial for their healing journey. Your participation at Button Ball directly impacts the lives of those thousands of children. This year’s theme will be The Roaring Twenties, so think “The Great Gatsby!”

The evening will include a cocktail reception with hors d’oeuvres, a bourbon grab, an elegant dinner from Catering & Events By Suzette, dancing, and silent and live auctions. Our keynote speaker will be Erin Merryn, sharing her inspiring personal story, and about the enactment of “Erin’s Law,” which became law in Tennessee in 2014. Live music will be provided by Coy Roy. And we are pleased to have Department of Children’s Services Director of Communications Alex Denis return as Master of Ceremonies.

Funds raised support investigative and healing services to children and their families who are facing sexual and significant physical abuse. These services include Forensic Interviewing, Child & Family Advocacy, Trauma-Focused Counseling, Case Management, and community-based Prevention.
