Beneficiaries

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 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.

The Gentry's Educational Center is a grassroots movement started by Evelyn Hickerson to offer children in Franklin, TN the opportunity to enrich their lives through education and mentoring. Supporting this banner of change through community and grants has made it possible to offer a summer camp that includes academic instruction as well as music and sports. A host of teachers and education professionals joined Evelyn in creating meaningful and exciting activities for approximately 100 students for 4 weeks in the summer.  

The vision of the Gentry's Educational Center expanded to include students from kindergarten to upper elementary grades. Before and after school tutoring with certified teachers is also offered. Students are given needed instruction to fill gaps in learning, but more importantly, given guidance and mentoring to realize their full potential.

In 2008, Jim and Melinda Hollandsworth met one family living in a mobile home community near their home which changed the trajectory of their own life path. This family introduced them to a neighborhood where very few children were graduating from high school, and many were headed down a destructive path. At that time, Jim was an Executive Pastor at a local church and Melinda had been a 2nd grade and special education teacher. They decided to help a few neighborhood kids with homework and invited their friends to help.

Years later, they are just as passionate about equipping kids through positive relationships and finding new ways to enhance education programs beyond the school walls. They also have the privilege of leading an amazing staff who make Path Project not just function, but thrive. Not to mention, working alongside community leaders, churches, and local schools to transform communities for many years to come!

Most people don’t realize that children in foster care often travel with nothing more than a trash bag to hold their belongings. We’re here to change that – one bag, and one person at a time.

 

My Bag My Story is on a mission to improve the lives of children in foster care, elevating their sense of dignity and self worth.
