Out of respect for CDC guidelines and with the safety of everyone in mind (especially those who are most vulnerable), TJC will not be having our annual Mother’s Day Luncheon on April 28th.
This decision is challenging for us. Our Hall of Fame event has served as an important revenue source for TJC in recent years, and the funds raised carry such an important impact on the clients we serve. We appreciate all of you who have already supported this year’s campaign through your donations, ticket purchases, and sponsorships. Please email us letting us know if you would like your registration fees to be converted into a 100% tax-deductible donation, or if you would prefer to be issued a refund.
This event is also such a source of inspiration to the community and to us. The TJC story is a continuing story of resilience, and the origin story of our Mother’s Day celebration is one of compassion. In the face of so much uncertainty and at a time when we as a society need stories of both right now, we will continue to find ways (some traditional and some creative) to recognize resilience and compassion during this upcoming Mother’s Day season.
We will be working over the next weeks to come up with a “plan B” for the celebration of our Hall of Fame honorees, and more details will follow. Please know that we also still intend to begin celebrating our Mothers of the Year next month and participate as a recipient nonprofit in Middle TN’s online giving day, The Big Payback, on May 6.
Please consider supporting us with a donation today to enable us to carry out our mission of ensuring dignity and opportunity for all Tennesseans.
