The T.J. Martell Foundation for Leukemia, Cancer and AIDS research announced Let’s Talk Nashville, a rare opportunity for guests to dine at tables and engage in conversation with some of Nashville’s most interesting and influential people in business, sports and music.  

The event, set for Sept. 4-6 at the Nashville City Club, will give guests an unprecedented opportunity to rub elbows with Nashville’s most interesting. Seating is limited and early reservations are encouraged.

Guests include Brent Dougherty, host of 3HL Sports Network; Joe Guercio, musical director and composer for Elvis Presley; Tommy Shaw, founding member of the legendary band STYX; Pete Fisher, vice president and general manager of the Grand Ole’ Opry; and John Dwyer, former News Channel 2 anchor; among others.

Let’s Talk Nashville is a fundraiser that provides a rare opportunity for guests to be seated around a dinner table hosted by well-known personalities and trendsetters of Nashville. Each table will feature a “guest host” who will also provide a personalized centerpiece for their table that reflects their background or area of expertise.   

At the end of the evening each centerpiece will be auctioned off to the guests in attendance, and all proceeds will benefit the T.J. Martell Foundation.

The event will help raise substantial funds to support early-stage research for leukemia, cancer and AIDS at top research hospitals in the U.S. Scientists depend on private funding from foundations such as the T.J. Martell Foundation to help fund ground-breaking projects. The T.J. Martell Foundation has contributed more than $260 million for research through the years that has turned into bench to bedside discoveries.
