Jet Linx Nashvilles Sponsors Boots & Bubbles
Jet Linx Nashville once again sponsored Boots & Bubbles, an annual crawfish boil benefitting the Nashville Dolphins – a non-profit that provides free swim instruction and training to children and adults with special needs. The event was held at the beautiful home of John and Julia Morris, which sits on 16 acres – complete with lush green grass, a gorgeously manicured yard, and a pristine pond with ducks. After an unseasonably chilly spring, guests were blessed with a perfect afternoon of 80 degree weather without a cloud in the sky.
Over 250 guests of all ages came to enjoy the afternoon and support the Dolphins. With battery powered cars, a balloon artist, and a bouncy house, the party was quite the family affair. Guests enjoyed festive specialty drinks sponsored by Deep Eddys Vodka, ice cold beers from Ajax Turner Budweiser, a margarita machine (compliments of Margarita Mac – a favorite Chattanooga sponsor!), and of course plenty of hot, spicy crawfish. Entertainment was provided by one of the Dolphins’ lead swim instructors, TJ Carter. The event raised over $30,000 in support of the Dolphins.
As the Nashville Dolphins continue to grow in numbers, limited pool space has become their number one obstacle. With over 200 participants this past year and a waitlist of over 100 more, there is a strong need in the community for another pool. The organization plans to build a facility that will include a 6-lane lap pool and a shallow swim pool for learning – providing much needed services to the Nashville special needs community. The Dolphins are are working diligently to achieve their goal, and are preparing to launch a major gift campaign to provide seed money until a capital campaign is launched. The history of the Dolphins organization, along with the involvement of Jet Linx Nashville team, was recently featured in an issue of SOAR Magazine – click here to read the article!
