EVENT: Lights on the Lawn 2017
EVENT DATE: Sep 22, 2017
On September 22nd, 2017, the Vanderbilt and Greater Nashville communities will come together to support The Mary Parrish Center, a vital Nashville organization. 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 communities 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 $45,000 for the MPC. We are excited to share that this funding has allowed them to purchase their property - a major milestone for any non-profit! This year’s fundraiser will allow them to pay for regular maintenance costs and renovations that come with this new ownership. 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.
