Freedom Political Action Committee will hold its inaugural Freedom PAC Awards Dinner Thursday.

The event, which will begin at 6 p.m. at the James Ward Agricultural Center in Lebanon, will feature Steve Gill, WKRN political analyst, as the guest speaker, and Jordan’s Catering will provide a dinner buffet.

Sen. Mae Beavers, who will serve as master of ceremonies, said the group will present awards to John Harris, founder of the Tennessee Firearms Association, and Andy Miller, founder of the Tennessee Freedom Coalition.

“[These are] two men that we feel have made a difference for the conservative movement in Tennessee,” said Beavers.

Harris, a graduate of Vanderbilt University and Vanderbilt University School of Law, is a Nashville attorney and gun rights activist.

Miller, a member of the Williamson County Republican Party Chairman’s Circle, serves as chairman and executive director for the Tennessee Freedom Coalition.

The event will also feature door prizes and a live auction.

“It’s just about sold out, but if anybody still wants a ticket, call or email and we will make room,” said Beavers.

Tickets cost $50 each.

Beavers said that despite reports circulating that Freedom PAC is “her” PAC, it’s not.

“It’s a group of citizens that just got together and decided they wanted to make a difference and raise money for conservative candidates,” said Beavers. “It has nothing to do with any party or group.”

She said the committee includes members from Jackson County, Rutherford County, Wilson County and Davidson County.

Money raised by the event will go to conservative candidates.
