Gilda’s Club Middle Tennessee’s Associate Board is comprised of a group of dedicated young professionals, who volunteer, fundraise and donate to support Gilda’s Club’s mission: to ensure that all Middle Tennesseans impacted by cancers are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community. Inspired by their own personal connections to cancer, the Associate Board formed in March 2016. As one Associate Board member shared, they are all at an age when a parent, grandparent or someone they know is unfortunately dealing with cancer.
Whether cooking dinner for Gilda’s Club support groups, helping with The Big Payback, partnering with staff on our annual golf event, or hosting benefit nights at local bars and restaurants, the Associate Board utilizes their connections as young professionals to ensure that no one faces cancer alone. Additionally, the group has volunteered at Gilda’s Club’s Halloween party; held a benefit night at Kendra Scott Jewelry; partnered with Nashville's The Ben and Morey Show, with all proceeds supporting Gilda’s Club; and more. Led by a core executive committee, the Associate Board Chair serves as a non-voting member and liaison to our Board of Directors, while other Associate Board executive committee members serve on Board Committees.
Currently, Gilda’s Club is looking for aspiring leaders, passionate about cancer support to join the Associate Board. Click here to learn more about the Gilda’s Club Middle Tennessee’s Associate Board and e-mail the group if you are interested in joining.
