Nashville Dolphins Hosts Clay Classic, April 7

The non-profit will be hosting their 9thย Annual Boots & Bubbles Crawfish Boil, presented by the Tennessee Titans.

The Nashville Dolphins non-profit will be hosting their 9th Annual Boots & Bubbles Crawfish Boil on Thursday, April 7 at the Nashville Gun Club along the beautiful Cumberland River. This event comes with the addition of a clay shoot prior to the all-you-can-eat crawfish boil dinner, so you can compete in the clay shoot tournament or just come for dinner, live music and the biggest silent auction to date!

The clay shoot portion of the event will begin promptly at 3 p.m., but please be sure to arrive at 1:30 p.m. for check-in. You can sign up to shoot as an individual or as a team of five. This is a great opportunity to get together with friends, colleagues, neighbors, church groups, etc. and enjoy an afternoon of clay shooting followed by a delicious all-you-can-eat crawfish dinner! If clay shooting is not for you, you may purchase a ticket for the crawfish dinner only.

The dinner portion of the event will be from 5 โ€“ 8 p.m. and will have live music courtesy of The Northern Lights as well as a silent auction. The wildly popular all-you-can-eat crawfish will be prepared by Louisiana Seafood Company, along with plenty of fixings (sausage, corn and potatoes), O.H. Ingram River Aged Whiskey tasting, and bottomless beverages!

Clay Shoot tickets are $300 for an individual shooter and $1,500 for a team of five (note: all shooting tickets include a dinner ticket as well). You can also purchase a dinner-only ticket for $100.

Nashville Dolphins started in 2003 when founder, Beth Scruggs, agreed to help a swimmer with Down Syndrome improve her swimming skills to compete in the Special Olympics. Today, more than 230 swimmers participate in the aquatics programming we provide, ranging from beginners just learning to blow bubbles to long-distance champions practicing several days a week. Because swimming is a lifelong sport with far-reaching benefits for an individualโ€™s health and well-being, we serve swimmers of all ages with no age-out policy. And because of the intensity of our mission to bring the physical and emotional benefits of swimming to people with special needs regardless of age, ability, or financial circumstances, we provide all programming at no cost to the participant.

It is the Nashville Dolphins’ mission to improve the health and quality of life for children and adults with special needs and combat the alarmingly high statistic of drowning deaths. The Nashville Dolphins provide adaptive aquatic lessons ranging from water safety and survival through competitive swim team programming for participants at no cost. In addition, we empower our swimmers to experience the joy and pride of being a lifetime member of the Nashville Dolphins family. Our programs aim to enhance the quality, health, and safety of the daily lives of both our participants and their family members, within a safe and socially supportive community environment.
