Flying High is an annual event that raises funds to support the Customs House Museum and Cultural Center’s exhibits and programming. The event boasts a silent and live auction that showcases a wide variety of work from artists in the Clarksville-Montgomery County area as well as goods from area businesses. This year’s theme was Arabian Nights which harkened back to the tales of flying carpets and djinn. The signature artist this year was Mrs. Beverly Parker, who created a mixed media work for the event entitled “Sail Away”.

Batson Nolan was proud to be a table sponsor for Flying High 2015 Arabian Nights. Several staff members were able to enjoy a wonderful evening while supporting the fundraising endeavors of the Customs House. Batson Nolan was happy to contribute to this event and partner with the Customs House to aid in its mission to continue to bring quality exhibits and educational programming to the Clarksville-Montgomery County community.

Batson Nolan associate attorney, Jamie Durrett, served as the Chair of Flying High this year. The Chair is responsible for the planning and execution of Flying High and leads the Flying High Committee. Jamie is also the current president of the Customs House Museum Guild. Batson Nolan associates Paige Lyle and Jennifer Gower also serve as members of the Guild and were a part of the Flying High committee that works closely with the Chair to obtain auction donations for the live and silent auction and assists in planning the event. The Customs House Museum and Cultural Center is the second largest general museum in Tennessee and receives all its funding for exhibits through grants and the fundraising efforts of the Customs House Museum Guild.
