Women Who Rock Nashville will host its inaugural Black-Tie Gala at the Omni Hotel located 250 5th Ave. S. Nashville, Tenn. 37203 on March 31.
Organizer Tanya Davis hopes that Women Who Rock Nashville will be an annual award show.
“This Gala Event will honor diverse women of all walks of life in different fields involving education, entertainment, medicine, entrepreneurship, activist, recovery, domestic violence, cancer survivor and more,” said Davis. “WWRN is established to promote and recognize women in our community accomplishments, as well as to encourage other women to get involved in the various organizations, partnerships or just create their own.”
Prior to coming to Nashville in 2003, Davis’ life took a turn down a road of destruction, living a dangerous life on the streets in Detroit, Michigan. Her life was as an addict. She was plagued with drug use, prostitution, domestic violence and homelessness, which led to crime and subsequent jail time.
According to Davis, “in the lion’s den,” God met her in her cell and began to change her life.
Davis relocated to Nashville in 2003, and today is an entrepreneur, inspirational speaker, producer, salon owner and professional hair stylist, educator, author and playwright.
Davis is the owner of Salon Ice, and founder of the Icicle, Inc. Foundation, designed to help change the world by empowering young ladies 10-17 years to lead, innovate, and serve.
Women Who Rock Nashville, Inc. has partnered with 501(c) 3 non-profit ‘Pass the Beauty Domestic Violence Organization.’
Proceeds from the event are used to help the organization with its day-to-day operations providing various needs such as outreach ministry, group meetings, mentoring programs and so much more.
