The Center for the Arts was proud to be a part of the Backstage Bash, a distinctive fundraising block party was held March 20 at the Center and on College Street in Murfreesboro where the Backstage Bash committee invited guests to put on their favorite jeans or formal attire and join them for an evening of food and entertainment with the ambience, drama and décor of a backstage concert pass; this event was definitely a great evening

The event chaired by David and Brook LaRoche and Lee and Rebecca Upton began with dinner Catered by Maple Street Grill at 6 p.m. and featured the Tyrone Smith Revue taking the stage at 8 p.m.

College Street was closed in front of the Center and tented for the occasion. The goal is for this to become an annual event that people are excited to attend.The money raised will be used to continue bringing visual and performing arts to Murfreesboro for both children and adults.

A silent auction focused on local artists was also held during the Backstage Bash.

Presenting sponsors for the event are Dempsey Vantrease & Follis, Wiser Co., Nissan of Murfreesboro, Venture Express and First Tennessee Bank. Media sponsors are The Daily News Journal and The Murfreesboro Post.
