The Charities Bash is being held this weekend at Music City Tents and Events new warehouse. It's an evening of dancing, drinking and LIVE music from the band "Guilty Pleasures".
The popular rental company is usually the one helping throw some of the biggest parties around town, but this Saturday they are excited to be the ones hosting the fun! "It wouldn't be us if it wasn't a full on bash huge party! Lots of the events we work on around town are swankiest and nicest but our business motto is partying is our business, so we don't do anything that isn't 100% 100 miles per hour" says JT Terrell, who is a partner of Music City Tents and Events.
The money will be divided amongst four charities. The American Red Cross, Our Kids, TJ Martell Foundation and The Nashville Food Project.
Tickets can be purchased on the webpage below, up until 7pm Saturday. After that you will have to purchase tickets at the door.

Updated conservatorship statute effective July 1
May 21, 2013 12:49 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Gov. Bill Haslam has signed into law revisions to the state conservatorship statute.
The law allows the court to appoint a conservator to manage the assets of a person a judge finds unable to handle his or her own affairs.
State Rep. Andrew Farmer, a Sevierville Republican, told The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/1183hjy ) the intent of the bill he sponsored in the House is to make sure people aren't being taken advantage of.
The bill sprang from a series of hearings statewide by the Tennessee Bar Association. They revealed there were no uniform procedures for placing a person's assets under a conservator on an emergency basis.
The changes take effect July 1.
