THE STORY: On September 27th, 2019, the Vanderbilt and Greater Nashville community will come together to support The Mary Parrish Center, Nashville's local transitional housing center for women who have been affected by domestic violence.
WHO WE ARE: Lights on the Lawn is a group that has come together to do our part to move Vanderbilt forward in a positive way against sexual violence as a group seeking to engage the larger Vanderbilt and Nashville community as a force for good. Oh, and we are counting on you to join us.
WHO WE SUPPORT: Lights on the Lawn supports the Mary Parrish Center, an all encompassing transitional living and therapeutic housing program for women and families who are victims of domestic and sexual violence. The work they do on a daily basis to rebuild lives is nothing short of incredible. Walking into the Mary Parrish Center is like walking into a giant hug. Let’s bring this hug to Vanderbilt.
OUR GOAL: Last year, Lights on the Lawn raised over $40,000 for the MPC, with a little help from one of the world's most renowned EDM artists - Diplo. This year’s fundraiser will allow the MPC to pay for regular maintenance costs and neccesary renovations that will enable them to continue supporting these victims as they have done in the past. Your help assures that they can continue to provide safe, cost-free housing and all of their life saving holistic services to the women and children who call The Mary Parrish Center home.
