Goal: Raise $10,000 for Martha O’Bryan Center

What is Music City Chef Throwdown?

Local chefs making an impact on Nashville’s culinary scene are going head-to-head at Music City Chef Throwdown to benefit Martha O’Bryan Center. NextUP - Martha O’Bryan Center Ambassadors is challenging Nashville chefs to showcase how an amazing meal can be made with the simplest of ingredients. Local food experts will choose a champion and guests will choose their favorite.

Music City Chef Throwdown is the annual fundraiser produced by NextUP benefiting Martha O’Bryan Center.

Formerly known as Foodbank Throwdown, and unique from other food events, chefs receive a list of low-cost, widely available ingredients to create their dish, and cook against the clock to present their meals to the judges - LIVE! Our judges will choose the 2018 Throwdown Champion, while our guests choose their favorite as the People’s Choice Award, and the lowest cost meal will be awarded the Spirit Award. Guests will enjoy a sample from each chef team, no crowds or waiting in line, and “front row” access to the action.

Martha O'Bryan Center is located in East Nashville, in the heart of Cayce Place, less than a mile from downtown Nashville, an area comprised of luxury condos, thriving businesses, and state government offices.

The average household income for families in Cayce Place is $7,494, 70 percent below the national poverty threshold for a family of 4. 90 percent of households are headed by a single woman; 59 percent of residents are under the age of 18.

Young Nonprofit Professionals - Addressing Nashville's Big Challenges

Addressing Nashville's Big Challenges: Where Do Young Professionals Fit In?

In the nonprofit sector, are we solving problems as they appear? Or are we disrupting the systems that created those problems in the first place? By thinking big, we are “looking upstream” and creating change on a wider scale. But as young professionals, it can be challenging to interrupt the status quo. Join us for this conversation about systems change, social entrepreneurship,and how YNP’s can fit in to the big picture.

 This session's facilitator is Scott Schumann of the new social enterprise Tipping Futures. In looking upstream, Scott is truly walking the walk. Scott created Tipping Futures when he noticed a huge need in Nashville: when placing people in affordable housing, nonprofits do not have a reliable source of furniture. Scott and his team are working to solve this issue by opening Nashville’s first and only furniture bank. At this YNP session, learn more about the work of Tipping Futures and about big-pictures ideas of social entrepreneurship in the21st century. Beer, wine, and snacks are included in the registration price.

*Please note: YNP membership changed in 2018. Participants do not need to join YNP in order to attend these sessions; simply sign yourself up per session.

Instructor(s): TBD

Fee: $10.00 for Members; $10.00 for nonmembers

Nashville Children’s Alliance will once again hold its annual 5K Walk at Sevier Park on April 7, 2018.  Our walk has been held annually for 13 years, raising not only awareness of child sexual and physical abuse, but also the necessary funds to support and sustain the work of the Nashville Children’s Alliance.  Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. and the 5K Walk is scheduled to start at 9:00 a.m. at Sevier Park in the 12th South Area. This is a pet and family friendly event.  Please go to www.nashvillechildrensalliance.org to register to walk.

The mission of The Nashville Children’s Alliance is to reduce the trauma of child abuse victims and their families by facilitating a comprehensive multidisciplinary team approach to detection, investigation, prosecution and treatment.

  • The multidisciplinary team working on each abuse case consists of professional representatives from the Department of Children’s Services, Metropolitan Police Department, District Attorney’s Office, and Nashville Children’s Alliance forensic interviewers and clinical therapists. These professionals convene weekly and the case review is managed by our staff.  
  • Last year, 1,797 cases of alleged sexual and severe physical abuse were reviewed by our multidisciplinary team (NCA, DCS, DA, Metro Police)  
  • Over 707 children were interviewed by our forensic interviewers, and 159 children were provided trauma focused therapy with our clinical therapists in 1,738 therapy sessions.  
  • NCA serves children, ages 3-17, providing therapeutic trauma-focused counseling to those who have suffered severe physical or sexual abuse, been traumatized by domestic violence, or witnessed a homicide.
  • NCA provides services to English and Spanish-speaking children and non-offending parents in a child-friendly, safe environment.  
  • Our services to Nashville’s child abuse victims have grown by an average of 10% each and every year since our start in 1992, which demonstrates the perpetual need for our services and an increasing need for funding.
  • All of the services are provided at absolutely no cost to the families we serve.

ABOUT THE EVENT

Did you know just one inch of rain on 1000 square feet of rooftop produces 600 gallons of usable water?! This month, join Team Lightning, Urban Green Lab and the Cumberland River Compact to learn about how to save water and money this spring! We'll cover the benefits of collecting rain water and will finish the workshop with a hands-on demonstration of how to make your own rain barrel, giving you the option to take one home with you for just $40! This workshop is part of Team Lightning's Engage Green Sustainability Workshop Series, which will cover a new sustainability topic each month. Be on the lookout as more workshops continue to be posted on our calendar in the coming weeks and months!

During this workshop, we'll listen to a presentation from representatives with the Cumberland River Compact. Their presentation will include demos on how water pollution can spread throughout local watersheds, as well as an informational overview on how rain barrels work and the benefits that they provide for those who use them. The workshop will conclude with a hands-on demonstration of how to make and use a rain barrel, and will provide the opportunity for participants to take home their own rain barrel for $40.

The Cumberland River winds for over 696 miles through Kentucky and Tennessee. The land through which it flows is home to some of the greatest biodiversity in the United States. Its course touches 40 counties in Tennessee and 32 in Kentucky, with a combined population of more than 2,000,000. Many of the same water resource problems that plague other regions (need for plentiful water, streambank erosion, sedimentation, nutrients and pathogens) have a foothold here. We work throughout the 18,000 square miles of the Cumberland River Basin to address those problems.

The Cumberland River Compact works to protect the Cumberland River and its tributaries through the education of local residents about its importance and through advocating for policies that will benefit the river and surrounding waterways. The Compact does this through its Adopt A Stream program, which Team Lightning participates in, as well as through annual events such as the Dragon Boat Festival and the Catfish Rodeo.

ABOUT TEAM LIGHTNING'S ENGAGE GREEN SUSTAINABILITY SERIES

Engage Green is an initiative of Team Lightning designed to educate the Nashville community about simple ways to make their lives greener. Engage Green hosts a knowledgeable speaker every month to cover information on how-to topics that can be easily transferred into our daily lives in an informal, casual setting. Each presentation is interactive and allows for discussion throughout. Topics will vary month-to-month, and will be designed to cover a range of sustainbility-related topics. Each workshop is free and includes a one-hour presentation or demonstration with opportunities for questions/answers and engaging with other participants. No reservations needed. Open to the public. Locations may vary.

Urban Green Lab is Nashville's first hub for sustainable living. The non-profit group offers hands-on educational workshops that focus on sustainable living practices such as urban gardening, home weatherization, energy efficiency and water conservation.

ABOUT THE EVENT

We'll float down the "Kingston Springs Ball Park to Hwy 70 Bridge" route down the Harpeth River for approximately 5 miles of beginner-friendly floating, swimming, and community service! The average paddle time is normally around 2-3 hours, however since we'll be picking up trash along the way (and also swimming and generally having fun), this float may take 4-5 hours instead! 

As a whole, the goal is to stay mostly together as a group, be off the river/unloading trash by 3pm, and back to our cars, heading home by 4pm.

Be sure to bring:

  • A cooler with snacks and refreshments. Be sure to have a bungie cord around the cooler in case you overturn your boat!
  • Trash bags and gloves, if you're interested in cleaning up along the river (we'll have some extras)
  • Your Team Lightning shirt if you have one!

REGISTRATION

  1. Full Canoe: If you want to sign up for a full boat, just register for two individual spots! We will group up in boats when we arrive.
  2. Individual (Share boat): Don't know anyone going on the trip? No worries! Here's a great way to meet someone! If you plan to come alone and would like to share a canoe with another Team Lightning participant, this is a great option for you. Register for an individual spot and we will pair you up when we arrive!
  3. Bring own boat ($10 for Shuttle): If you already have your own canoe or kayak and want to paddle with Team Lightning, Foggy Bottom Canoe is offering to shuttle your boat for $10 to participants who have their own boat.

HIKING STATS: 

Estimated Drive Time One Way: 1 hour and 20 minutes
Hike Distance: Roughly 5.5 miles
Estimated Hike Time: 4.5 hours

Shakerag Hollow

Take a walk through Shakerag Hollow, a forested area just off Green’s View that has remained virtually undisturbed by humans and is one of the most popular areas on the Domain of the University of the South for botanists and wildflower enthusiasts. The two-mile walk extends from the University gates on the eastern end of campus to Green’s View. On either end, the trail enters a forest typical of the Cumberland Plateau: the soil on the Plateau, derived from sandstone bedrock, is relatively poor and dry. The forest is  of the “mixed oak” or “oak-hickory” type. It is a forest of nut producing trees, and the acorns and hickory nuts attract much wildlife. The understory is well-developed, with sassafras and dogwood trees, along with blueberry and mountain laurel shrubs.

The trail was constructed in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. As it descends into Shakerag Hollow, there is a marked change in species composition: some of the larger trees here include buckeye, basswood, and sugar maple. This is a cove hardwood forest, an area known for its high species diversity. Here, the bedrock is limestone, or calcium carbonate, which is rich in plant nutrients. In addition, the soil on this north-facing slope is  more moist than that on top of the plateau.

Thumping Dick Cove

Thumping Dick Hollow, also known as Thumping Dick Cove, is a small cove in Franklin County, south Tennessee, within the domain of the University of the South and town of Sewanee. It is noted for its unusual name, old-growth forest, and caves. Thumping Dick Hollow is a small cove with multiple sinkholes and caves including Solomon's Temple. It is also noted for its old growth forest. 

There are multiple traditions as to the origin of the unusual name. The hollow was referred to as early as 1858 before the University of the South was built. A popular version relates that a local resident named "Dick" built a water-powered grain mill in the 19th century; when in operation, the mill made a "thumping" sound that was heard throughout the surrounding forest.  Another version of the origin states that the a hydro powered sump pump or sawmill made a thumping sound when in operation.

Thumping Dick Hollow located off of the old Stagecoach route of the Breakfield Road in Sewanee, Tennessee and forms part of the Sewanee Perimeter Trail. It is approximately 700 feet (210 m) in elevation below Breakfield Road. From gate #7 on Breakfield Road, follow the path beyond the gate for .8 miles (1.3 km) until it crosses a stream with a collapsed bridge. Cross over the stream and follow a faint path to the left until the entrance to the Columned Entrance Cave is visible. The second cave, Solomon's Temple, is further ahead around the cliff on the right.

REGISTRATION

Registration is required. Upon registration, you will receive an email with additional details and driving directions. If you have questions about registration, please email TeamLightning@Lightning100.com

ABOUT SECOND HARVEST

Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee opened its doors in 1978 with commitment from several community leaders. The purpose of the organization was to provide a central distribution center for companies, groups and individuals who wished to help provide food for hungry people in Middle Tennessee. Second Harvest's mission is to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in our community. Modeled after the first food bank established in Phoenix in the mid-1970s, Second Harvest was designed to collect food that would otherwise be wasted, inspect and sort this food, and distribute it to soup kitchens, pantries, and shelters serving the hungry. During the first year, this process resulted in a total distribution of 160,000 pounds of food to 75 member agencies.

With more than 1 million Tennesseans at risk of hunger every day, they are working hard to get food to those who need it most. Last year, their fleet of 18 trucks covered more than 750,000 miles rescuing and delivering food to our network of more than 490 partner agencies and directly to hungry children, families and seniors throughout our 46-county service area!

FARM POLICIES

Please note that this event takes place at one of Second Harvest’s partner farms. Therefore, the Food Bank is required to set certain limitations relating to groups that volunteer on the farm. While on the farm, we may be doing a variety of tasks, including crop harvesting, weeding, and much more! Please be prepared to help with several different types of projects.

Belongings: Personal belongings are the responsibility of the owner. Second Harvest asks that volunteers leave personal belongings in their cars whenever possible.
Young Volunteers: Volunteers must be age 7 and up to work on the farm. Groups with volunteers younger than age 18 must be accompanied by adult chaperones. One adult for every five young people (age 7-18) is required.
Orientation: New volunteers will participate in a short orientation upon arrival at the farm.

Safety rules:
* Please wear closed toed shoes (no sandals). Dress for a farm environment.
* Long pants and sleeves are recommended, but not required. Wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.
