The 21st Annual Awards Breakfast presented by the Downtown Henderson Partnership will be held on Thursday, February 19, 2015. The Awards Breakfast will be held at Rookies banquet room from 7:30am to 9am.
The DHP is pleased to have Matt and Carrie Eddmenson Henderson natives and founders of Imogene + Willie as our guest speakers. Matt and Carrie founded Imogene + Willie with one defining passion: to make blue jeans, an integral garment in the fabric of America’s history. Matt and Carrie were convinced to reclaim jean manufacturing stateside after years of witnessing American manufacturing being forced off-shore. They have succeeded in pursuing their convictions while building a clothing and lifestyle brand which preserves the simple principles of quality goods made and manufactured in the United States. Their distinctive style and taste has created a cult following grown primarily through word of mouth. Their original store, a one-of-a-kind space with inspirational decor housed in an old gas station in the burgeoning 12th Avenue South neighborhood in Nashville, has also become a community gathering spot with the hosting of the couple’s now-legendary Supper + Song evenings. They have developed and grown a successful global e-commerce presence and have expanded their retail model to an owned and operated store in Portland, Oregon, all while selling their collection to more than 100 speciality stores throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan.
The Awards Breakfast is an opportunity to honor individuals and organizations that have worked diligently and successfully for the growth and vitality of Downtown Henderson. Several awards will be presented at the breakfast. Breakfast will be provided by the Downtown Diner.
Tickets prices are $15 for members and $20 for non-members. Call the Downtown Henderson Partnership at 270-827-0016 for more information.
