WASHINGTON – The Tennessee State Society of Washington, D.C. (TSS) today announced ticket sales are open for the 2009 Tennessee State Society Inaugural Ball.
"The Tennessee State Society is a nonpartisan, nonpolitical, social, and philanthropic organization that connects individuals living in our nation's capital who either hail from, or have a deep love for the Volunteer State," said Jill Bader, president of TSS. "We invite all Tennesseans traveling to D.C. this January to join us at the 2009 Tennessee State Society Inaugural Ball."
The 2009 Tennessee State Society Inaugural Ball is the only organized Tennessee event in D.C. surrounding the inauguration. The nonpartisan, nonpolitical, black-tie ball will be held on January 20, 2009 at the City Tavern Club in Georgetown and is open to all Tennesseans and friends living in Washington, D.C, and those arriving in D.C. for the inauguration.
The Tennessee State Society connects Tennesseans living in D.C. through social and philanthropic events. TSS members include the Tennessee congressional delegation and staff, young professionals, students, executive branch employees, established business professionals, homemakers, lobbyists, teachers, retirees, military personnel, and volunteers in the D.C. community.
Other TSS hosted events planned for 2009 include the selection of the Tennessee Cherry Blossom Princess, an Elvis birthday party with the Mississippi State Society, a reception in the Capitol to honor the Tennessee congressional delegation and staff, a fall charity party to raise money for the Ft. Campbell Fisher house and the Trey Lefler Memorial Scholarship at the University of the South, and a holiday party with the Georgia State Society.
TSS is still accepting corporate sponsors for the ball and for other events in 2009. All interested corporations should contact Jill Bader at (615) 364-5056.
