This year on Thursday, September 8, 2016, Cornelius & Collins, LLP held its second annual #UniquelyNashville event!

The firm hosts the event annually not only to raise money for a great cause, but also to highlight what exactly makes Nashville so unique. This year, the firm held a honky-tonk themed event at Layla’s on Broadway along with hiring a local Nashville band, The Eskimo Brothers, to play at the event. The firm is proud to announce that $5000 will be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, raised in part through wristband and t-shirt sales along with generous donations from clients and the public! That is the equivalent to 1250 meals for those in need.

For further information about this and next year’s #UniquelyNashville event and other firm events, please follow us on all of our social media sites-Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, and Twitter.
