The Franklin Theatre will be hosting the fifth annual Bella Bash this Thursday night (October 11). The Bella Bash is an evening of awareness and fundraising, but mostly music, laughter and love. It is quickly becoming a Nashville tradition. This year’s guests include the spectacular multi-award winning Jason Crabb, multi-Dove winner, Clay Crosse, American Idol alum, Melinda Doolittle, and critically acclaimed vocal group, The Martins. The Smoking Section will be the house band and heartbeat of the evening.
The Bella Bash is a yearly event put together by singer/songwriter, and Nashville native, Regie Hamm and his wife Yolanda. The event is named after their daughter Isabella (or Bella) who suffers from the rare genetic disorder known as Angelman Syndrome – a partial deletion of the 15th chromosome. This rare disorder causes severe gross motor skill delays and renders individuals unable to speak. Proceeds from the evening will go to the Angel Wings Foundation, a 501c3 formed by the Hamms to raise awareness for Angelman Syndrome as well as providing services and therapies to low functioning special needs children.
On the night of the event, the Hamms will premiere a new awareness video that they intend to distribute to pediatricians through their Angel Wings Foundation (www.angelwingsfoundation.info).
There will be red carpet and press photos at 6:30 pm, with doors opening at 7. Tickets are $50.00 online or $55.00 at the door. Tickets available at www.FranklinTheatre.com and at the Franklin Theatre Box Office, (615) 538-2076.
