A Tennessee Waltz 2015

The Museum Foundation is delighted that John Ferguson, Chairman of Nashville’s Corrections Corporation of America and the former State of Tennessee Commissioner of Finance and Administration, and his wife Carole are the 2015 A Tennessee Waltz gala chairs, along with honorary hosts, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and First Lady Crissy Haslam.

The 23rd edition of the Waltz is set for Saturday, April 18 at 7 p.m. in the State Capitol. The Jack Daniel Distillery is the Presenting Sponsor of the gala for the 13th consecutive year. This elegant fundraising event provides the primary source of revenue for the annual operation of the museum Foundation. 

Other chairs of the Waltz include Mary Belle and Tony Grande, who have been selected as the co-chairs of the annual Ladies’ & Gentlemen’s Committees. The reception honoring the committees will be held on Friday, March 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. at 4017 Estes Road, Nashville, 37215. For details about this pre-event, please contact Leigh Hendry, the museum’s Director of External Affairs at lhendry@bellsouth.net.
