How Your Donations Help

Twenty Organizations and Growing

From libraries to medical centers, from services focused on preventing domestic abuse to scholarships for higher education, A Vintage Affair has been a played a role in positively transforming Williamson County for the better — one wildly entertaining event at a time.

We’ve contributed funds to 20 well-worthwhile organizations. But we prefer to think of the dozens of women who have been taken into safe places. Or the hundreds of children who have received specialized learning programs. And the incalculable number of smiles that have spread across all the faces of those who feel a true sense of fulfillment by contributing their presence to the big picture of being human.

Know an Organization That Could Benefit?

You’re in luck! We’re always looking for new causes and organizations who would benefit from our community’s kindness. Let us know who you’re nominating — and more importantly — why. If your suggestion matches our mission, we’ll reach out personally to take the next step of what promises to be a fantastic partnership.

Williamson Medical Center

Williamson Medical Center has been so fortunate over the years to be a beneficiary of A Vintage Affair. Thanks to the donations from this event, we are able to buy additional equipment and supplies needed for our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit so that we can take the absolute best care of our littlest patients.

Bridges Domestic Violence Center

Bridges Domestic Violence Center was one of the first beneficiaries of A Vintage Affair. In 2002, we were raising money to purchase a larger facility to provide shelter for more victims in our community. AVA made a significant contribution to this capital campaign, allowing us to expand our services to a 15-bed shelter. Since then, AVA has helped us purchase a used SUV to transport clients and pick-up donations, and also provided funds to replace the mattresses and box springs in our shelter. This year, AVA will help us upgrade to a digital security system, which will help protect the women and children in our care.

My Friend’s House

AVA has been our longest, most consistent supporter going back to their beginning. Their sincere belief in our mission to improve the life of our local youth through foster homes, relative placement or transitional living is palpable.

High Hopes

High Hopes Development Center was created out of necessity by five families in Middle Tennessee. These community members envisioned a place where children with special needs could receive a jump start in early education with therapeutic interventions on-site for those who needed it.

Saddle Up!

Saddle Up! partnered with AVA as part of our 25th anniversary celebration in 2015. Ashley Roberts played a large role in beginning our partnership, as she volunteered for our organization and served as the director for AVA.

Davis House

Davis House has enjoyed a long, beneficial partnership with A Vintage Affair, beginning with the shared mission of providing support to the children of Williamson County: specifically, children facing abuse. AVA has a unique role – through its events and grant funding, they provide opportunities to raise awareness and share stories demonstrating our collective impact in improving the lives of children in this community.

Williamson County Foster & Adoption Care Association

Williamson County Foster & Adoption Care Association is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that offers emotional support, education, resources and social events to foster parents/children in Williamson County. We encourage and motivate foster and adoptive parents in our community to work to promote the welfare of foster children. We support foster parents so they know they are not alone in their foster care journey, as well as work to retain our local foster parents.

One Generation Away

Chris and Elaine moved from St Louis, MO to Franklin, TN in 2004 to start a church. Little did they know that in the process of pastoring a church that One Generation Away would be birthed. In 2011 One Generation Away was established and in the first year distributed 20,000 pounds of food from the back of the Whitney’s car. It has now grown to serve over 1.8 million meals to those in need all over Middle Tennessee and in 4 states with disaster relief. Chris and Elaine have a passion to see churches and organizations come together to serve our neighbors in need.
