On Saturday, March 7, PLAY Dance Bar will be fundraising for tornado relief after the devastating Nashville tornadoes. Many in the Middle Tennessee LGBTQ+ community were affected directly by this tragic event. Play has announced that they are proud to be matching ALL donations up to $7,000.
“Please come help us raise our goal of $14,000 or more towards helping people impacted throughout our community,” said a statement from bar owners. “PLAY Dance Bar wants to thanks everyone in the community that supports our neighbors and friends directly as we all work to rebuild our city.”
Tomorrow night’s event follows up on an earlier fundraiser the owners held at Tribe. On Thursday, March 5, Tribe held a fundraiser for tornado relief after the devastating EF-3 & EF-4 tornadoes that hit earlier this week. In less than two days, drag performer Tracey Ottomey aka David Williams, spearheaded this successful event with some of the best drag talent Nashville has to offer.
As a result, many in the community gathered for a positive cause, and the event raised a total of $6,053 that will be divided equally among the following non-profit organizations that are vital to rebuilding our community:
• Nashville Humane Association
• Martha O’Bryan Center
• Hands On Nashville
• Community Resource Center.
Back in November, O&AN profiled the owners of Tribe and PLAY for their generous community philanthropy, and their response to this tragedy reaffirms that commitment.
