Antiques and Garden 20th Anniversary Celebration

February 2, 2010

The Tennessean reports on the 20th Anniversary Celebration of the Antiques and Garden Show of Nashville, held at The Pinnacle at Symphony Place and honoring Sigourney Cheek and Connie Cigarran, founders of the show, along with past show chairs and the board of directors.

Bass, Berry & Sims PLC is a sponsor of the 2010 Antiques and Garden Show.

From the article:

The powers-that-be who are involved with The Antiques & Garden Show of Nashville showed up on the evening of Jan. 21 at The Pinnacle at Symphony Place. They convened to raise a glass to event founders Connie Cigarran and Sigourney Cheek. What a pair of steel magnolias! And what an event they birthed.

Their offspring is now 20 years old. That said, the organization needed some darn strong underwriters to celebrate in style. The 20th Anniversary Sponsor for the show is the group of six companies that made the new Pinnacle building possible. They are Bass Berry & Sims, Pinnacle Financial Partners, Barry Real Estate Companies, Brasfied & Gorrie, Boyle Investment Co. and Nashville Commercial.

Guests loved touring the gleaming new building and catching up with past and current chairmen, corporate sponsors and A&G board members. It was the perfect time to showcase the building's seventh floor green roof, which attracted thumbs ups from all who saw it.
