'Come-and-Go Open House' comes at vital time for fundraising
Posted: Feb. 1, 2016
MURFREESBORO – The staff and leadership of Journeys in Community Living are looking forward to making the organization’s case for community support at a "Come-and-Go Open House" event scheduled for March 8.
Journeys is a more than 40-year-old nonprofit organization that serves people with disabilities in Rutherford and Cannon counties. Its programs help people with disabilities seek and maintain employment, receive medical treatment, obtain transportation and participate in volunteer work and recreational activities.
The open house—which is being organized with participants from the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce’s 2016 Leadership Rutherford class—is an opportunity for leaders from the organization to explain the intricacies of its programs to new potential supporters while at the same time thanking its long-time supporters for their help over the years.
Volunteers from Leadership Rutherford are not involved in any direct fundraising, and instead are helping with the planning and execution of the open house, which will be held between the hours of 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the facility's main office at 1130 Haley Road.
“We have really enjoyed helping expand community awareness of the great services this organization provides,” said Glenn Robb, one of the volunteers. “Rutherford County is privileged to have such dedicated assistance to help all citizens enjoy fulfilling and productive lives.”
The open house comes at a time that Journeys is seeking sponsors for its 2016 events.
Journey’s first event of the season, its Annual Celebration and Silent Auction, is planned for April 28 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Murfreesboro. Two other events, a summer concert and fall golf tournament, are also currently being planned.
"Fundraising is vital to every organization," said Journeys Development Coordinator Mark Bell. "We can't support people with disabilities without having financial assistance from great people and companies. We can't thank the Leadership Rutherford class enough for all they've done to help plan this event, which we know will make our other events stronger."
Journeys' EVENTS PAGE has been updated with all of the events planned for this year, and potential sponsors can find all the information they'll need to make a decision about donating to the organization, as well as a way to actually donate. CLICK HERE TO BE TAKEN DIRECTLY TO THE DONOR TOOLKIT.

The open house will also feature the first-ever showings of several professionally filmed and edited videos that explain how the program operates. One of the videos will feature a “day-in-the-life” of a person supported by Journeys. More than 2,500 invitations are being sent out ahead of the event, but anyone may attend.
