Corporate Sponsors & Patrons

The Main Event is the Harpeth Hall Parents Association's largest annual fundraiser. The funds generated through this event advance Harpeth Hall's mission of educating girls to think critically, to lead confidently, and to live honorably. This school year, enrollment is 698 students from 37 different zip codes. Last year's gift from the Harpeth Hall Parents Association funded benches for the middle school playground, new campus banners, and new lighting for the Frances Bond Davis Theatre. This theatre is a vital space used not only by our entire school, but by other organizations in the community such as the Centennial Youth Ballet performing the Mini Nutcracker and the Littlestone Summer Music Festival, which provides opportunities for disadvantaged youth to be exposed to music.

BECOME A CORPORATE SPONSOR OF THE MAIN EVENT
We would be honored to have you in our circle of corporate supporters this year. The Main Event 2019 will be marketed and promoted to all Harpeth Hall families, Nashville-area alumna, faculty, and trustees. Given the extensive Harpeth Hall community that we will reach through this celebration, the visibility for your company will be tremendous. Corporate sponsor levels are: Platinum ($10,000), Plaid ($5,000), Green ($2,500), and Gray ($1,500).  Contact Beth Dodd, Melanie Jeansonne, or Jill Rork for information on becoming a corporate sponsor.
