Jo Dee Messina will host “Night of Nostalgia,” a big band swing and casino night, to raise money for the non-profit Holy Trinity Montessori School on March 3 at the Maxwell House Hotel in Nashville. The night will include an open bar, light fare, and dancing as well as a performance from Jo Dee.
“This isn’t about just a cause I believe in or the latest celebrity charity,” Jo Dee said. “I want this campaign to show that even in a time when people feel there is little hope, that there IS hope and dreams still DO come true. I chose it because we need people from all over to carry us with their support to make this dream come true.”
The school, founded in 2009, currently has 25 students enrolled and 45 on the wait list. Jo Dee launched the “A Million Doors” campaign last year to help raise $2.3 million for the school, with all funds going directly towards construction of a new schoolhouse. The new building will accommodate up to, but no more than, 125 children through the third grade and possibly up to the fifth.
Tickets for Night of Nostalgia are $60 and can be purchased at http://nostalgia2012.eventbrite.com.
