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

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.

A Vintage Affair is a unique non-profit because they raise money with the goal of giving it all away, rather than funding its own organization. Bridges is extremely grateful for our partnership with A Vintage Affair and proud to be a beneficiary of their generous efforts to invest in the well-being of women and children in our area.

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.

With their support, our platform is brought before people and organizations who might otherwise be disconnected from our efforts. More importantly, their seal of approval adds validity in the eyes of community members who want to do an act of kindness.

Thousands of young men have been able to sit down to healthy meals, sleep comfortably and receive life-changing therapy thanks to the generosity of AVA.

Working with them ensures a grape time is had by all!

Saddle Up!

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

As a beneficiary, AVA produced a video featuring two mothers who have children in our therapeutic horseback-riding program. Not only was this interview considered one of our best ever, it also helped increase our exposure within the community, which has proved invaluable.

Working with AVA is lots of terrific fun, and their support helps our program serve more than 270 well-deserving children every year.

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.

This transparency between donors and beneficiaries informing how AVA collaboratively serves children creates a far more engaged donor base for AVA, ultimately supporting grant recipients like Davis House. AVA directly enhances our ability to provide healing services through our counseling program for children suffering from the trauma of abuse. AVA also supports our investigative team efforts to keep children in this community safe, allowing us to provide these services at no cost to the children we serve. AVA is actively engaged, always looking to help us aid children in distress.

O’More College of Design

Our long, happy partnership with AVA began in 2009. Over the years, we’ve watched our students put their full creative talents on display at the annual A Fashion Affair and seen them mature during their internship at AVA.

We’re proud our campus has served as the host for the Grape Stomp the last three years where thousands of community members can share joyous experiences. These events bring new friends into our lives and connect us more firmly to where O’More lives.

We look forward to continuing our jubilant, communal and meaningful relationship with AVA.
