Adults with special needs invite you to an uplifting evening of family-friendly entertainment, food, fellowship and more!
BrightStone is pleased to invite the community to its 20th Annual Christmas Program, Season of Love, presented by Advance Financial, Thursday, December 5th in Liberty Hall at the Factory in Franklin. The program will consist of a musical concert featuring BrightStone students followed by a reception of light hors d’oeuvres. The entire event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 5:45pm. The concert begins at 6:30pm.
This free concert and reception is BrightStone’s gift to the community. It gives students of all abilities a chance to show off skills they have learned thanks to the generous support of donors and sponsors throughout the year.
With a 20 year history of bringing holiday cheer to the hearts of all who attend, BrightStone’s Annual Christmas event has become a holiday tradition for many families. Last year, over 700 attended and applauded the program as, “A beautiful and joyous event!” Audience members felt the performance was “Just God inspired and precious.” Many proclaimed, “That was awesome!”
This year attendees will hear a variety of Christmas standards, popular music with a “lovely” twist and an original score co-written by BrightStone students and BrightStone Music Director, J’Nae Fincannon. Refreshments will be provided after the performance by Jo’s Custom Cakes and Catering.
While the Christmas Concert and Reception is not a fundraiser for BrightStone, guests can show their support by shopping the student-made goods at the BrightStone store or purchasing items off the BrightStone Wish Tree at the event.
