Sweethearts for Scholarships Gala 2009

The annual Sweethearts for Scholarships Gala was held Valentine’s weekend at the Hilton Downtown, benefiting Nashville State Community College. Brent Young, Executive Director of Nashville State, welcomed more than 350 of Middle Tennessee’s philanthropic and community leaders to a 4 course meal, live auction and an intimate, acoustic concert by James Otto, who sang some of his hits from the past year including the Just Got Started Lovin’ You.

Ebie McFarland was the 2009 Gala Chair, while James and his wife Amy were the 2009 Celebrity Sweetheart Honorees.

More than $70,000 was raised for student scholarships at Nashville State Community College. This year’s emphasis was on scholarships for single mothers working more than one job and continuing their education.

Among those pictured- James & Amy Otto, Alison DeMarcus, Brent Young, Jenny Newman, Mayor Karl Dean and Emily Maynard
