SOLID Shatters Fundraising Record At Annual Music Row Madness

Industry Organization Celebrates Over $52,000 Raised For Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 26, 2018) - The Society of Leaders In Development (SOLID) made history last night, raising over $52,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee (BBBSMT) at their annual Music Row Madness event held at Topgolf. The fundraiser broke records for both organizations: the event, previously known as the annual Bowling for Kids' Sake bowling event, pulled in more money then any single BBBSMT bowling event in history and became SOLID's most successful fundraiser in its 20+ years. 

"I am overwhelmed by the generosity of our community, and incredibly proud of everyone who came together to make a huge difference for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee," said Collin Trudan, chair of SOLID's Community Outreach committee. 

"From the start of this year, it's been evident our board and membership have a fire and resilience," said Johnny Cloherty, president of SOLID. "Everyone involved - from board and membership, to our Friends of SOLID and the folks that just stopped by to support - worked so hard to make this happen for an organization that's been a long time partner and cause we all care about. I'm thrilled and humbled by last night's event."

This is SOLID's eighth year hosting an event in support of BBBSMT - the previous record amount raised was $33,000.
