Saturday, March 7th, attendees of the annual Maury County Benefit Ball were treated to "An Evening in the Orient." Bamboo and oriental umbrellas lined the red carpet hallway guiding guests into the ballroom where lavish red- and gold-themed tables dotted the floor.
This year's black tie affair was co-chaired by Angie Roberts and Brooke Hensley with support from the Executive Board comprised of Anita Dubois, Myra Sharp, Connie Harris, Mickie Dehaven, Blair Hickman, Sheena Gentry, Kay Craft, Alice Williams, Nicole Houser, Pam Holloway and Joanne Pogue, along with Organizers: Julie Beck, Nikki Webb, Heather Miliken, Jill Fields, Berrie Coble, Carey Albright, Gina Farris, Erin Jaggers, Carol Carnahan and Leah Ginn.
Local attorney Chaz Molder entertained the crowd as the evening's MC and announcer of the 2015 recipient of the Lucille Queener Courtney Award, which is kept secret until the night of the ball. This year's honor went to Jerry Sweeney, co-founder of Tennessee Aluminum Processors, Inc. for his lifetime contributions to the community.
After the awards and dinner, which was catered by executive chef Joel Simpler of Al Dente catering, the Nashville-based band Pink Cadillac took the stage to get the attendees up and moving onto the dance floor. The upstairs offered a respite from the dance floor as guests perused silent auction items from Colonel Littleton, Loblolly Antiques, Baker Equipment and Tenn South Distillery to name a few. Proceeds from the evening will go to Casa of Maury County and Maury County Students in Transition. For more photos of the evening festivities visit our Social Snaps page.
