“Let’s Talk Nashville” provides a rare opportunity for guests to dine at tables hosted by some of the most interesting, accomplished and influential people in Nashville.
Each table has a “Guest Host” who will provide a table “centerpiece” that reflects their background or area of expertise and is intended to start the flow of conversation. Centerpieces will be included in the evening’s silent auction.
All proceeds benefit the T.J. Martell Foundation, which funds innovative leukemia, cancer and AIDS research at top hospitals across the country.
