Brighton Collectibles Makes NCT Part of National Campaign to Raise Funds for ChildrenÂ’s Arts Programs

Brighton Collectibles has partnered with Nashville Children's Theatre (NCT) for their Brighton Loves Kids Across America campaign. This fundraising endeavor focuses on the sale of Brighton's unique Americana bracelet, and the company will donate 50% of proceeds to NCT.

For each $48 Americana bracelet sold at the Brighton Collectible store located in The Mall at Green Hills, $24 will be donated to NCT to directly impact programs benefitting the youth of Middle Tennessee. This campaign runs from June 1 through July 31.

In addition to bracelet sales, this local Brighton Collectibles will hold a bake sale in their store to raise additional funds for NCT. Homemade treats will be sold on Saturday, July 14 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., or until the baked goods are gone.

While in the store, customers can enter a drawing for a pass for four people to attend all shows in the 2012-13 season.

After almost a decade of supporting charities and giving over $8 million in donations, this iconic accessory company has turned its focus towards a range of kids' charity programs for the arts such as ballet, orchestra, symphony, theatre, and painting programs.

In researching children's arts organizations in Nashville, Brighton Collectibles selected NCT as the best choice due to the theatre's longtime dedication to children and its belief that a cultural heritage is the right of all children.

Nashville Children's Theatre is a professional theatre company providing the children, families and educators of Middle Tennessee with extraordinary shared theatrical experiences that inspire imagination, develop creativity and build community.

Founded in 1931 by the Junior League of Nashville, NCT is recognized as the oldest professional children's theater in the country. A national leader in professional theater arts and education programs for young people, NCT was ranked by Time magazine as one of the top five children's theaters in the nation.
