Posted on: December 30th, 2017 by tgregory

Would you and a few friends like to sit down with Nashville Mayor Megan Barry over a cup of coffee and trade ideas with her on making our fair city even better?

Well, it’s a real possibility because a breakfast for 10 with the mayor is among the 175 items up for bid in the silent auction set for this year’s Big Night Out event benefiting the Gordon JCC.

The Big Night Out takes place on Saturday, Jan. 20, at the J, starting at 6:45 p.m. It’s been dubbed the J Mitzvah event, given the theme of “Party like it’s your Bar Mitzvah.”

For the second year in a row, the Silent Auction chairs are Laurel Orley and Kelly Unger.  Up for grabs along with breakfast with Mayor Barry are a Honky Tonk Central VIP deck party for 20, a behind-the-scenes tour of the Nashville Zoo, gift cards to all the new and hottest restaurants in the Nashville dining scene, and much more. Silent Auction will be open online a week before the event with paper bidding the evening of the event.

Tickets are now on sale and are available for purchase online at nashvillejcc.org/big-night-out. Tickets cost $136/person at the early bird rate until Jan. 1 and $150/person after that.

Along with great items at the silent auction, the evening includes dinner, cocktails, DJ and dancing and more.  In addition to Laurel and Kelly, Big Night Out chairs are Leeron S. Resnick, Jessica Pinsly, Nancy Jacobs and Barbara Davis.

Sponsors of Big Night Out include lead sponsor Zander Insurance Group, along with American Paper & Twine Co., Argent Trust, Best Brands, Capstar Bank, Delek US Holdings Inc., The Dorothy Cate & Thomas F. Frist Foundation, Ghertner & Company Inc., Hermitage Lighting Gallery, Kraft CPAs PLLC, Lipman Brothers and R.S. Lipman Company, PrintNet USA, Rhizome Productions and Sprintz Furniture.
