"Celebrate the end of the summer with us at Light Up the Night. It will be perfect dancing weather with temperatures in the low 70s," Child Advocacy Center director Sharon De Boer said.
The 3rd annual Light Up the Night party will be held at Oaklands Mansion in Murfreesboro on Friday evening, Sept. 6 from 6:30 until 9:30 p.m. Dance under the stars at the party of the season, mix and mingle, and enjoy an evening that will benefit a great cause—child abuse victims served by the Child Advocacy Centers in Rutherford and Cannon Counties.
"Guests are asked to wear white to help Light up the Night!" continued De Boer. "Grab your dancing shoes because the Nashville based band Crossroads will have you dancing the night away with your favorite dance partner." Professional photographer Frank Caperton will capture the moment in photos.
Brittnie Noble and Elizabeth Benton announced the amazing food menu for the event: Blue Cactus Cantina Brisket Quesadillas, Corelife Eatery Southwestern Rice Bowl, Goodness Gracious Cafe Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs, Goodness Gracious Cafe Finger foods, and Puckett's Grocery Pimento Cheese Bites.
