Sponsors of More Unpredictable include
The show, which is the brainchild of former Out & About Newspaper Editor Brent Meredith, has raised nearly $55,000 in its three year history. Meredith came up with the idea while trying to find a unique and fun fundraiser for the GLBT community.
Now in its twelfth year, Nashville's GLBT Chamber of Commerce serves the community by meeting its mission to advance common business interests, economic growth and equality in the workplace and society for it’s GLBT members, businesses and allies by providing educational, networking and community-building opportunities
"Fantastic fashion, high-end silent auction items and delicious fare are expected to be a part of the upcoming event as they have in years past," said Co-chair Michael Fluck. "This year’s event is rumored to have an “Unpredictable” art element incorporated into the show, along with a “Mr. and Mrs. Unpredictable” contest for those wishing to show off their fashion sense."
More Unpredictable is now accepting donated items for the silent auction from businesses and individuals, and is looking for sponsors, gift bag contributions and volunteers to help behind the scenes on event day. At press time, some high profile items had already been donated for the silent auction including an authentic NFL football signed by ALL three Mannings (Archie, Eli & Peyton) with an estimated value up to $2,000;a painting valued at $150 and a set of Bridgestone tires with an estimated value up to $1,400.
In addition to Fluck and Jones, other committee members include Eric Payne and Lane Scoggin, co-silent auction chairs; and Laramey Lawson and Heath Overton, co-chairing the liaison committee that recruits and works with the fashion stores, models and schools.
