The Nashville Basket Brigade has announced an online auction featuring autographed memorabilia from Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, The Band Perry, Owl City and more. Showcasing one artist every three weeks, the auction is available at www.NashvilleBasketBrigade.org with funds going to feed families throughout the Nashville area this Thanksgiving.
“This year, we’re very excited to partner with friends in the music community to help raise money for this year’s basket drive,” Founder and President Ben Enos said. “With their help, we plan on building and delivering at least 200 baskets.”
Since 2007, the Nashville Basket Brigade has grown each year, distributing food-filled baskets to Nashville families in need every Thanksgiving holiday. For 2013, the Brigade hopes to raise $6000, which will allow the Brigade to feed 200 families this November.
The bidding will start for an Owl City signed guitar Saturday, August 31 and will run through Saturday, September 7. Those who would like to contribute directly to the cause can do so by making an online donation through the organization’s website or sending a check directly to the Nashville Basket Brigade (122 Sheffield Place, Franklin, TN, 37067).
