The YWCA and MEND:

This year’s proceeds will help to launch YWCA’s new Nashville program: MEND.  MEN equal the END of domestic violence against women.  The program seeks to educate and enforce a focus on the issue of domestic abuse for men in positions of influence such as coaches and CEOs.  These role model leaders have an incredible opportunity to cut domestic abuse at its roots by impact the decisions of those who admire and follow them. While this is a local effort, the YWCA hopes to start a nationwide movement  – join us to raise $50,000 and get them launched!!

Anthem is a 900 capacity event venue downtown across from 12th and Porter.  Premier DJs of Nashville ‘s Ian McCarty will return again this year for hot sounds, and you can expect a professional photographer/staging, valet, a very naughty Santa entertainer, and a few other surprises.
