6th Annual “An Evening of Stories”
at the Franklin Theatre to Benefit Porter’s Call
Features Storytellers Scott Hamilton, Marcus Hummon, and Anita Norman
Franklin, Tenn. (December 8, 2014) — Porter’s Call is pleased to announce the 6th annual “An Evening of Stories,” which will take place Wednesday, March 11, 2015, 7:30 p.m., at the historic Franklin Theatre. This year’s storytellers will include Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton, award-winning songwriter Marcus Hummon, and Poetry Out Loud National Champion Anita Norman. All proceeds from the event benefit Porter’s Call, a non-profit dedicated to providing counsel, support and encouragement for touring and recording artists and their families.
This sell-out event promises to be a winsome night of stories in-the-round featuring an eclectic group of storytellers, who will weave their unique, moving and often humorous tales into the fabric of a magical evening. “An Evening of Stories” will uphold its reputation for putting the “fun” back in fundraiser.
“Every day, I have the privilege of talking with men and women who are going out into the world, sharing good news through music, and being a force for change. Their potential impact is huge, and their reach is extensive. Often I have the privilege of helping them to tell a better story,” shares Porter’s Call founder Al Andrews. “By being a part of ‘An Evening of Stories,’ you are becoming a part of the larger story of hope that is being told in this world. We’re grateful for your partnership.”
In years past, previous storytellers have included Vince Gill, Amy Grant, David Wilcox, Donald Miller, Ian Crone, Nichole Nordeman, Billy Collins, Becca Stevens, Andy Gullahorn, Andrew Peterson, Bob Goff, The Warren Brothers and Minton Sparks, among others.
Tickets for this year’s event are $100 ($75-tax-deductible) and are available for purchase starting February 3 at the Franklin Theatre’s box office and website: www.franklintheatre.com/more.
As the sole fundraiser for Porter’s Call, “An Evening of Stories” seeks to raise nearly one-third of the organization’s annual operating budget, thus allowing more time and attention to be focused on the mission of serving touring and recording music artists and their families. A limited number of sponsorships are still available for individuals, businesses, and foundations. Sponsorships include priority seating for the show, a VIP reception, and recognition on marketing materials. Interested parties should contact Porter’s Call immediately.
