Heritage Ball black-tie event draws the stars out to Franklin

The 49th Heritage Ball drew a sellout crowd of 870 revelers out to Franklin for a night of fundraising and black-tie glamour. The annual event is hosted by the Heritage Foundation of Williamson County and raises money for historic preservation in the county.

This year’s event aimed to bring the stars out to Eastern Flank Battlefield Park. The event was held in a massive tent decorated with twinkling light fixtures. A red-carpet interview area helped bring a Hollywood flavor to the night.

R&B/gospel singer Heather Headley and Michael W. Smith, a contemporary Christian artist, provided entertainment.

“The idea is that we want every person to leave and feel like the star they are, because everybody here is a star,” Heritage Foundation President Bari Beasley said Saturday.
