The Nashville skyline was the backdrop to history in the making Sunday night for Belmont Service Corps, the university’s largest student organization. Approximately 500 people attended Service Corp’s first annual Skyline Party, which was held on the top floor of the Curb Event Center parking garage and raised almost $1,000 in donations for the Nashville Gilda’s Club.
“I am so proud to say that the Skyline Party was one of the greatest accomplishments for Service Corps members the organization has ever seen,” said Bob Foglia, president. “For the first time ever, we were able to take what we have learned over the years through volunteering at entertainment industry events across the nation, to create, plan and successfully implement an event that undoubtedly raised awareness of cancer throughout the Nashville community.”
The Skyline Party, which included musical performances by Madison Hardy, Greg Bates and EMI Publishing’s Brett Mcglaughlin, was the organization’s first independent event dedicated solely to giving back to the community for its consistent support and belief in student education and was aided by contributions from Sony BMG, Universal Music Group Nashville, Rock Solid Security, Red Bull, Subway and country recording artist Luke Bryan. For years, as part of the Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business, Belmont University’s Service Corps has been known throughout the country as an organization of music industry majors and student leaders who donate their time and talent to volunteering at various events.
