Crazy Pitches, a group of Nashville music publishers consisting of Chelsea Kent of Still Working Music, Hannah Showmaker of Parallel Entertainment, Ciara Gardner of Disney Music Publishing, and Sarah Feldman of Writer’s Den Music Group, have set September 10, 2015 as the date for the inaugural Dress Up for St. Jude event. The special evening will showcase an array of high-end fashion just in time for fall award shows, holidays and more with 100% of the proceeds being donated to St. Jude’s Music Therapy program.
The idea for the fundraiser came after the Crazy Pitches ladies visited St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis earlier this year. Their visit included seeing the cutting edge research, innovative technologies, meeting patients and their families, doctors and nurses and realizing the far-reaching impact the hospital has had worldwide.
“The trip really put on our hearts to come up with a way to give back to this great organization,” said Ciara Gardner. “St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is extremely close to Music Row’s heart, and it’s easy to see why.”
Dress Up for St. Jude organizers are asking artists and other music industry executives to clear out their closets, and donate the following gently used items:
• Dresses (gently used from past award shows/formal events.) Will be sold at a fraction of their value!
• Hanging racks
• Other accessories
The items will be sold at a fraction of the original prices at the sale!
When: September 10, 2015 at 5:30 pm
Where: Still Working Music Group
1625 Broadway # 200
Nashville, TN 37203
If you are unable to attend the event but you would still like to donate to this worthy cause, please donate using this page. All online donations will be credited to Dress Up for St. Jude.
“We are so excited the Crazy Pitches ladies took the time to see what St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is all about,” said Teri Watson, Senior Director, Event Marketing for St. Jude. “The fact that Dress Up For St. Jude coincides with Childhood Cancer Awareness Month will only serve to reinforce the mission of St. Jude."
