The longest running black tie event in Williamson County is just days away! Over 700 people are expected to attend this year’s Heritage Ball at Carnton Plantation in Franklin. We stopped by to talk with Heritage Ball Chair and Sponsor Emily Magid.
This year’s event will be very colorful, says Magid. In fact, this year’s theme is tie dye. As a fan of color and especially tie dye, Magid has been dying her hair colors like purple, pink and green for the last several years and for this event, she is sporting a varied rainbow color of purple and blue.
Magid says even the signature drink for the event will be colorful.
For men still looking for a tie dye option, you can purchase a colorful bow tie at the Lehew Magid Big House for Historic Preservation located at 112 Bridge Street, Franklin.
A long-time supporter of the Heritage Foundation, Magid was instrumental in saving the Franklin Theatre and the Old, Old Jail which is now called Lehew Magid Big House for Historic Preservation. Earlier this month, Heritage Foundation announced their biggest and latest project to preserve O’More College of Design campus after the college merged with Belmont College in Nashville. The plan is to make it a public space for learning, events and more. Read more the O’More College of Design and Heritage Foundation project here.
