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.

The Refuge Center

The Refuge Center for Counseling opened in December 2005 with the belief
that everyone, regardless of income level, deserves the chance to improve
their life and find hope and healing through counseling. The Refuge Center’s
sliding scale fees ensure that income is never a barrier to service, and quality
counseling can be afforded by all.

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.

 
 

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.
