Fashion show a fundraiser for Fisher House

The third annual Tennessee Fisher House Foundation “March Into Spring” luncheon and fashion show will be held Saturday, March 22, at Stones River Country Club, 1830 Northwest Broad Street in Murfreesboro.
This will be the third year the nonprofit organization has held this event to raise funds for the beautiful Fisher House, now open on the Alvin C. York VA Medical Center Campus. 
This home away from home offers free lodging to the families of veterans who are receiving care at the Murfreesboro hospital, as well as at the Nashville VA Medical Center. They are referred to the Fisher House via VA social worker, which every patient at the VA is assigned. Having opened Nov. 7, 2013, it is a success as the occupancy rate is floating between 85 and 99 percent with families opting to drive from Nashville to have a free place to stay while caring for their ill loved ones.
The foundation is the fundraising support system of the house to ensure the families do not have to be concerned about anything but being with their veteran.
Fashions will be provided by Penny’s Closet, Bella’s Boutique, and Trendy Pieces in Murfreesboro. This year’s event will be a little different from the usual ladies fashion show and luncheon in that musical entertainment will be offered by 14-year old champion banjo player R.T. Williams.. Williams has performed on the Grand Ole Opry with the Charlie Daniels Band, as well as at other venues. 
In addition, singer Thea Tippin will perform and sing the national anthem. Thea, an excellent singer who graduated from Belmont School of Music, is the spouse of country music singer/songwriter Aaron Tippin.
Melvin Kearney, who plays Bo the bodyguard on the hit show “Nashville” and models in this year’s Russell Athletics Catalog, will model, as will members of the Tennessee Fisher House Foundation, Inc. Board of Directors and the local community.
Registration begins at 10:45 a.m. Musical entertainment and shopping will begin at 11 a.m. Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m.
Tickets $30 and may be charged on a credit card over the phone by calling 615-904-2787, or in person at the Center for the Arts, 110 West College Street, Murfreesboro.
All proceeds benefit Tennessee Fisher House Foundation, a non-for-profit organization under section 501c(3) of the IRS Code.
