For the second year, Jet Linx Nashville was a proud sponsor of the Soundwaves & Sweetheart concert – an annual fundraising event held to support the Nashville Dolphins. A nonprofit organization, the Nashville Dolphins provide free aquatic programs to children and adults with special needs. The swimmers range from beginners, just learning to blow bubbles and kick their feet, to swim team members who practice several times a week and compete in the Special Olympics. Jet Linx Nashville Base Partner Trey Sutter and his family – including his wife, Dotty, and their three sons, Ben, Tommy, and Jet Linx Nashville Director of Business Development Elliott Sutter – have all been involved in the organization since it was founded in 2003.
This year’s concert was held a Skyville Live, a showcase venue for Nashville artists just starting their career and who have made it big. “It was the perfect spot to bring almost 300 people together to support an amazing cause and hear an extremely talented up-and-coming band – Boy Named Bango,” explained Elliott Sutter. “The band rocked the house! It was easy to tell the crowd was enjoying themselves.”
“The best part of the event was the Dolphins releasing their designs and concepts for their own swimming pool and facility.” Currently, the Nashville Dolphins practice at six pools across the Nashville metro area, which can make space limited as they compete with other swim programs to reserve times. Their annual events like Soundwaves and Sweethearts are held to raise the needed funds for the Dolphins to have a facility of their own.
