How your donations help. 20 organizations and growing.
From libraries to medical centers, from services focused on preventing domestic abuse to scholarships for higher education, A Vintage Affair has been a played a role in positively transforming Williamson County for the better — one wildly entertaining event at a time.
We’ve contributed funds to 20 well-worthwhile organizations. But we prefer to think of the dozens of women who have been taken into safe places. Or the hundreds of children who have received specialized learning programs. And the incalculable number of smiles that have spread across all the faces of those who feel a true sense of fulfillment by contributing their presence to the big picture of being human.
Williamson Medical Center Foundation collects donations and distributes them to a number of individual funds ranging from children’s needs to various areas throughout the main hospital. The Foundation has been in existence for 14 years and has raised nearly $7 million over that time.
Williamson Medical Center Foundation has been so fortunate over the years to be a beneficiary of A Vintage Affair. Thanks to the donations from this event, we are able to buy additional equipment and supplies needed for our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit so that we can take the absolute best care of our littlest patients.
Bridges Domestic Violence Center was one of the first beneficiaries of A Vintage Affair. In 2002, we were raising money to purchase a larger facility to provide shelter for more victims in our community. AVA made a significant contribution to this capital campaign, allowing us to expand our services to a 15-bed shelter. Since then, AVA has helped us purchase a used SUV to transport clients and pick-up donations, and also provided funds to replace the mattresses and box springs in our shelter. This year, AVA will help us upgrade to a digital security system, which will help protect the women and children in our care.
A Vintage Affair is a unique non-profit because they raise money with the goal of giving it all away, rather than funding its own organization. Bridges is extremely grateful for our partnership with A Vintage Affair and proud to be a beneficiary of their generous efforts to invest in the well-being of women and children in our area.
AVA has been our longest, most consistent supporter going back to their beginning. Their sincere belief in our mission to improve the life of our local youth through foster homes, relative placement or transitional living is palpable.
With their support, our platform is brought before people and organizations who might otherwise be disconnected from our efforts. More importantly, their seal of approval adds validity in the eyes of community members who want to do an act of kindness.
Thousands of young men have been able to sit down to healthy meals, sleep comfortably and receive life-changing therapy thanks to the generosity of AVA. Working with them ensures a grape time is had by all!
The Community Child Care Center is a not-for-profit organization established in 1971 by Church Women of Franklin. We have served many children in those years and helped families reach levels of independence that would not have been possible without an affordable, safe and nurturing alternative for their children.
Our staff understands that quality childcare and early education should promote the total development of the child. Therefore, in addition to classroom time, our program consists of outdoor play, indoor play, two nutritious meals and one snack per day (USDA-approved) and naps. The older children are also taken on educational field trips.
We operate based on a mission to "be Jesus" to Williamson County's inner-city youth.
Our goal is to bring physical and spiritual hope to low-income youth within our community by instilling in them critical life skills. We provide academic assistance, mentoring, recreation and spiritual growth opportunities for youth ages 8-18 in the form of weekly educational and vocational classes.
We meet 3 nights each week, and we supply transportation to and from our programs, as well as a hot meal each night. In addition to our regular programming of weekly courses, we provide college entrance test prep and college application assistance, which is a key service within our organization.

High Hopes Development Center was created out of necessity by five families in Middle Tennessee. These community members envisioned a place where children with special needs could receive a jump start in early education with therapeutic interventions onsite for those who needed it.
What they created was an inclusive environment, where children with special needs play, learn and grow alongside their friends that are typically-developing.
This inclusive education experience is bolstered by an onsite outpatient clinic providing four branches of pediatric therapy.
