Franklin’s Studio Tenn is hosting their annual fundraiser gala ‘One Night Only’ this Friday, Aug. 19, featuring cocktails, food, entertainment and an online auction.
This event is one of the most highly anticipated social events of the season, and this year’s online auction features guitars signed by Justin Timberlake, Dolly Parton, Alan Jackson and a host of other huge names in entertainment.
Other items up for bid include a week in a luxury Cabo vacation home and Hamilton Chicago tickets.
This is the world-class professional theatre company’s seventh season of production, and will be hosted by honorary co-chairs Clare Armistead and Melinda Doolittle. Featured performers include Broadway star Eden Espinosa and Tony Award-winner Anthony Crivello.
Bidding for the online auction started on Aug. 1 and continues through Aug. 19. All auction proceeds support Studio Tenn, and new items are continually being added. Bidders do not have to be present at the event to bid or win items.
“People can already start bidding on things even if they can’t attend the event,” Studio Tenn Vice President of Marketing and Development Jim Johnson said. “Since it’s all online, they can still compete in real time via text bidding. So cool.”
Tickets for the event come in a range of prices. While full tables, which have eight seats, are sold out at $2,200 each, single table seats are $275 each and theater seats are $175 each. Both are still available. All prices include food and drink, including an open bar.
The event will take place at Liberty Hall in The Factory at Franklin, located at 230 Franklin Road. To make a reservation, call 615-541-8200 or visit www.studiotenn.com/ono16.
