Evening of Song & Story

Why Songs? Why Stories?

An eating disorder gains its power from silence and secrecy.
Those who suffer from disordered eating often withdraw from their friends, family and normal activities. But those who voice their struggle begin to fight back; they break the eating disorder’s imposed silence by sharing their story. That simple, yet powerful act can initiate the process of recovery – and help return music to a life once deafened by a devastating mental illness.
This Year's Event: Thursday, April 17, 2014 | Belle Meade Country Club 
An Evening of Song & Story features compelling personal stories of hope and recovery from Jenni Schaefer, best-selling author of Life Without Ed: How One Woman Declared Independence From Her Eating Disorder and How You Can Too. Musical guest, Rivers Rutherford, singer-songwriter and composer of several number-one country hits including "Ain't Nothing 'bout You" performed by Brooks & Dunn, which was Billboard's number one song of 2001, will provide the evening's entertainment.
