A Benefit for the FiftyForward J.L. Turner Center
Event Description:
FiftyForward is a non-profit agency in Middle Tennessee that supports, champions and enhances life for adults fifty and old. Established in 1956, we serve more than 20,000 senior adults across the region. Here in Bellevue, the FiftyForward J.L. Turner Center was established in 2006, inside the Bellevue Family YMCA. In 12 years, we have grown to serving over 860 members annually.

Some of the many programs offered at the FiftyForward J.L. Turner Center include; Bellevue History & Genealogy Club, Health & Wellness Education, Art Classes, Service Projects, Writer’s Groups, Medicare Education, Support Services, Day Trips, Music, Theatre, and more. It is not uncommon for our members to credit FiftyForward for vastly improving their health, quality of life, and social activity.

Creating community is what we do at the Turner Center. Rise Tucker, long time member, director of the center’s Rhythm Band, and 2017 Volunteer of the Year award winner said, “The center encourages us to discover and explore things we simply love to do, and to share that enthusiasm with others.”

The growth and success of our center has created the need for fundraising, and we will have our first annual fundraiser, An Evening in Old Hollywood, on September 28th, 2018 at the FiftyForward Martin Center.

This event will be a social & dance, with live music, dinner, a dance floor, a silent auction, red carpet photobooth and more. We will be celebrating the golden era of 1940s Hollywood with a music, decorations, and dancing from the era. A live band will help us swing, lindyhop, and jitterbug the night away.  

Tickets are available through the Turner Center and a discount is available to current FiftyForward Members.

We are currently looking for corporate sponsors that share our passion for the Bellevue community, and wish to be recognized at this event and inside our center for the next year.

Your support will help the center meet its staffing needs, fund transportation programs, increase our programs, and much more. We hope to partner with businesses invested in Bellevue, and with a heart for our aging population. We hope to use your generous gift to help both the center, and our community at large.

We understand there are all types of businesses, big and small, and we are offering several levels of sponsorship. If these don’t work for you, perhaps you would consider participating in our Silent Auction at the event, and we would be happy to provide you with more information on that.
We appreciate your consideration of support for the FiftyForward J.L. Turner Center, and look forward to partnering with and promoting your business.
