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.

Tennessee sends search and rescue team to Oklahoma
May 21, 2013 16:19 GMT
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A Tennessee-based team of emergency service workers has gone to Oklahoma to help with tornado recovery.
Memphis Fire Department spokesman Wayne Cooke said that Tennessee Task Force 1 left early Tuesday from Memphis.
Cooke says the 80-member team will mostly help with search and rescue efforts after powerful and deadly tornadoes struck cities in Oklahoma on Sunday and Monday. Emergency crews are digging through the rubble of destroyed structures to find trapped people.
The team is bringing search dogs and semi-trailers loaded with equipment to help dig through collapsed structures and perform other duties. Cooke says the team consists of emergency personnel from around Tennessee.
The task force was one of several teams that deployed to areas affected by Hurricane Sandy last October.
