    The Gulch Gives Back helps fund Make-A-Wish wishes in Nashville area

    The Gulch Gives Back

    We all know about the wonderful work the Make-A-Wish Foundation does, granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, spreading a bit of happiness and goodness in the face of heart-rending circumstances. It’s a mission that’s hard not to love.

    Did you know, though, that here in Nashville, businesses in The Gulch have been banding together for an annual fundraising event that rounds up cash for Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee’s work here in our community? It’s a bit of neighborliness that’s also hard not to love.

    The second annual The Gulch Gives Back is set for Thursday, August 13 to Saturday, August 15, and it’s easy to take part: Purchasing a $10 Shopping Card gives you access to deals and discounts at a variety of Gulch restaurants and retailers, and those funds will go toward helping Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee to continue to do the good that they do.

    Here are just a few examples:


    WSMV Channel 4

    Make-A-Wish helped almost-7-year-old Franklin cowboy Josh spend a few days on a New Mexico ranch riding horses and attending a rodeo in his honor.


    WSMV Channel 4

    Aspiring pirate Alby, a 7-year-old boy from Cookeville, got to go on a Caribbean treasure hunting trip.


    Your contribution to great stories like those, by taking part in The Gulch Gives Back, will entail eating fantastic local food and shopping at some unique local shops, and saving on either/both.
