A Letter from your Chairman
Tony Phillips, 2017 GNHA Chair
Thank you to everyone that came out to support our Bowling for a Cause yesterday! We had 12 teams compete with some very exciting costumes! This is a really exciting event for us because we get to raise money for a special cause, The Arc of Davidson County and Greater Nashville. The Arc is a family based organization that promotes, protects and advocates for the right of people with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities to live self-determined, meaningful lives in inclusive communities. Our winners of the tournament were: 1st place Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, 2nd place Loews Vanderbilt Hotel, and 3rd place Renaissance Nashville Hotel. Congratulations to all our teams and winners! We raised over $2,500 for the Arc and the GNHA Education Foundation!
Our next big event will be the GNHPAC Golf Classic on May 24th at Vanderbilt Legends Golf Course. We have many sponsorship opportunities available and need your support to make this a successful event. This will be the best golf tournament yet with a beautiful course to play on. I hope everyone will sign up for a team this year since I know you all have great golfing skills to show off! We will have a silent auction, lunch, drinks and many more exciting prizes to offer! Please contact Sandi Goad (sandi@tnhta.net) for sponsorship opportunities or click here to register.
It is very important that everyone attend as many events as possible this year. We have added some exciting new ones for you such as our reverse vendor showcase, membership mixers, breakfast seminars, lunches, etc. If you are not able to attend one of our events please send a staff member in your place. I also encourage members to bring a non-member to our mixers and luncheons. Growing membership is a huge part of our success and we could not do it without you.
Thank you all for your continued support!
Tony Phillips
