On November 2, 2013, The Conservancy hosted a black-tie benefit to provide financial support for two of Nashville's favorite treasures, the Parthenon and Centennial Park. Hallmarks of our signature Gala are performance art, elements of surprise, style and unpredictable fun. Funds raised enable the Parthenon's award-winning educational programs to thrive, and help carry out Centennial Park's Master Plan to revitalize our park and restore it to its deserved glory. Gala Co-Chairs Brooks and Bert Mathews chose Designs in Verde as this year's theme. It was a very special evening.
