ABA TO RETURN TO NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE

Indianapolis, IN.  The American Basketball Association (ABA) www.abalive.com today announced that it will return to Nashville, TN next season.  “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again,” stated ABA CEO Joe Newman.  “This will be our fourth team in Nashville, one of the truly great entertainment cities in America. For whatever reason – management, timing, marketing – the teams have not achieved as we expected.  This time, keeping our fingers crossed, it will because we’ll have an entertainment based organization with extraordinary experience doing it.”
The new Nashville Soul and the WABA Nashville Heart (the Heart and Soul of Nashville) will be owned by UVEE Entertainment, LLC, headed by UVEE CEO Buddy Walker, who has 30 years in the concert and entertainment business and is now developing their own TV network.  Buddy also serves as CEO of ABA Entertainment and is coordinating the ABA’s Proud to Serve Concert Series honoring the military, police, firefighters and teachers (www.proudtoservecoffee.com) later this year.
“The lack of success in Nashville is not the fault of Nashville,” added Walker.  “We believe the sports fans of Nashville will support the team if we give them quality basketball at affordable prices, make a major commitment to the community and do the proper marketing.  We intend to do all three with both the “Heart and Soul of Nashville.” We are very excited about adding the ABA to our sports and entertainment efforts.”

Missouri Rhythm Works With KidsTLC

August 19, 2013

Missouri Rhythm

Dear Mr. Newman,

Every year KidsTLC transforms the lives of thousands of children in the community.  Our Psychiatric Residential Treatment program provides healing and hope for abused and neglected children facing the challenges of a mental illness.  Our Behavioral Health and Autism services provide integrated care to children and their families in the community.  Our Street Outreach services team provides resources to homeless and runaway teens throughout the metro area.  All these programs are generously supported by community businesses and volunteers.  One group of volunteers we can always count on is the team from Missouri Rhythm.

Missouri Rhythm players and coaches give their time and resources for our children and programs in many ways.  Over the last few years, Missouri Rhythm players have provided multiple sports clinics on our campus.   These clinics offer our kids opportunities to hear about sportsmanship, goal setting, team work and even to cheer on some impressive dunking skills. Interactions with successful community members provide our kids with a sense of hope for the future.

Along with group projects, Missouri Rhythm President, Bryant Tucker, served as an individual volunteer for our Mid Week Movie Mania summer activity.  Mr. Tucker shared the team popcorn machine, pizza and a great movie with the kids.  Some kids remembered him from the basketball clinic, earlier in the summer.  What a great connection!  We are grateful for the invitation to be the Charity of the Night at the November 23rd  Livin’ the Dream Exhibition Game– a great opportunity to spread the word about KidsTLC, raise support and provide a great outing for our kids and staff.

Missouri Rhythm players and coaches are an invaluable resource and greatly appreciated by the children and staff at KidsTLC.  We look forward to continued involvement with this organization and would like to extend an invitation for you to visit our campus and meet our kids.

 

Sincerely,

 

Elizabeth Hall

KidsTLC Community Liaison
