NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Starting this Thursday, Nashville’s Annual Christmas Village will be back for its 55th year.

With the help of the Nashville Pi Beta Phi Alumnae Club, the Christmas Village was able to raise $555,000 from last year’s events.

“So many people, young and old, owe their ability to speak, hear, and communicate to this historic Nashville tradition.” said Anne Marie Tharpe, Chair of the Department of Hearing and Speech Sciences.

The Bill Wilkerson Center is the main beneficiary of the Christmas Village.

“The involvement of the Nashville Pi Beta Phi Alumnae Club has immeasurably enhanced the ability of the Bill Wilkerson Center to serve the middle Tennessee area. We literally would not be the institution we are today without their unprecedented support through Christmas Village, ”

The four-day event will be held from Thursday until Sunday, Nov. 15.

Thursday is invitation only, from the hours of 3 p.m. until 9 p.m.  Friday will be available for the public from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m.
