Friday Night Fun

Nashville Star and American Idol alumni will be among performers at a family evening Graceworks benefit Friday, July 15 at Sodium in Franklin.

Singing will be Ashlee Hewitt, a 2008 top five contestant on Nashville Star, and Jimmie Allen, who finished in the top 40 on this year’s American Idol. The event is a collaboration of GraceWorks Ministries and Sodium. All proceeds will benefit both organizations.

The evening will begin at 6:30 and end at 9:30 pm at Sodium, 1725 Columbia Ave, Franklin, TN. Events will include face-painting, a balloon artist, a rock-climbing wall, pool tables, ping pong, a tree fort and a children’s play area. Middle and high school students are invited to participate in a Minute to Win It contest.

The music starts at 7 pm with guitarist Zach Nichols and singer/songwriter Jeff Schmid. Also performing will be singer/songwriter Tyler Flowers. The artists will be accompanied by musicians including international music producer Sammy Sylvester.

The cost is $5 per person, with a maximum of $20 per family. Sodium and GraceWorks also encourage those coming to bring a canned food item for Williamson County families in need. Tickets will be sold at the door.

Pizza and concessions will be available for additional cost.
