The Crown Affair celebrates the giving spirit of community volunteers and this year’s honorees Betsy Schubring Crossley, Vicki Hearn Horne and Lelan Statom and Cigna-HealthSpring

Nashville, Tenn. — The Crown Affair Patron Party was held Sunday, April 7, at the home of Melinda and Jeff Balser and celebrated community volunteers and Nashville leaders Betsy Schubring Crossley, Vicki Hearn Horne, Lelan Statom, and Cigna-HealthSpring.  Each of this year’s Crown Affair honorees is being recognized because they exemplify a giving spirit and are dedicated to serving others, not only through FiftyForward but also through other nonprofit organizations in the community.

FiftyForward will mark its 30th annual Crown Affair on Thursday, April 25. The Crown Affair, the nonprofit’s signature fundraising event, raises funds to benefit the more than 20,000 individuals (older adults, families and children) impacted by FiftyForward each year in Middle Tennessee.

This year, The Crown Affair is chaired by Teresa Corlew and Laura Smith, both of whom are former FiftyForward Board members and active community volunteers. Held at the FiftyForward Patricia Hart Building (174 Rains Ave., Nashville 37203), the 30th annual Crown Affair will feature a cocktail reception and silent auction at 6 p.m., followed by dinner and awards at 7:15 p.m. Tickets are $250. For information or to purchase tickets, please contact Elizabeth Ralph at 615-743-3409 or eralph@fiftyforward.org.
