Cherish the Night
Local nonprofit STARS hosted its eighth annual Cherish the Night at the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum at Municipal Auditorium. Presented by Dell Nashville, this year’s event hosted nearly 250 attendees and raised over $140,000 to support STARS programming. The evening featured a concert by Troy Gentry, of the CMA Award-winning country duo Montgomery Gentry, and special guests Neil Thrasher, Jeffrey Steele, Wendell Mobley and Bobby Pinson. Additionally, STARS honored community leader Jimmy Gentry with the Accepting Differences Among Mankind (ADAM) Award. The award is given in memory of Adam Duke, who had Down syndrome and was the son of Nashville’s Kids on the Block founder Alva Duke, to a member of the community who has gone the extra mile to promote accepting differences.
