On Monday, approximately 600 people attended our annual fundraiser benefiting the Conquerors Teen Outreach Program and contributed $111,625. I am so thankful for each of our table hosts, guests and community leaders who stood in support of Nashville's inner city youth. The beautiful setting of the Music City Center Grand Ballroom and the powerful messages from community leaders made for a very special day.
Sheriff Daron Hall credited the outreach and prevention programs of NICM with saving the taxpayers of Davidson County millions of dollars because of the empty beds in our jail system. The Conqueror teens had a great time interacting with all our guests. I especially enjoyed watching as our teens gathered with Police Chief Anderson and Juvenile Court Judge Sheila Calloway for pictures. The Conquerors requested pictures they could take back to their school administrators because it meant so much to them to spend time with Nashville's public servants and business community leaders.
To all those who participated, thanks again! However, if you were unable to attend, it's not too late to help our teens. Your check can be mailed to the address on the left side of this page or you can make a quick and secure donation via our PayPal link. Either way, you will be benefiting our city's youth.
