The event, which has grown in popularity and anticipation, is designed to spotlight ordinary people within the Nashville and surrounding areas for doing extraordinary things. Patrycya also uses it as an opportunity to give back to her community. “I wanted to create an atmosphere full of glamour, glitz and classy ‘black tie sophistication’ while we honor the ‘Movers and Shakers’ of Nashville,” she said.
