Dierks Bently performs at 30th Annual Employee Christmas Party

In mid-December Hemphill Brothers Coach Company held their annual Employee Christmas Party to bring everyone together for the holiday season. Each year the event gets bigger and bigger as they host 150+ employees and their families. For the past few years this gathering has been held at Gaylord Opryland’s Springhouse Golf Club and this year they welcomed a special performance from a long time client, Dierks Bentley http://dierks.com/. Past performers have included The Silver Cornet Band, Phil Vassar and many of their very talented employees and their children. The Nashville Strings played in the background as all enjoyed a family style dinner with all the trimmings. In between bites everyone checked their raffle tickets that they had been given to see if they were lucky enough to win one of the many door prizes given out during the party. In lieu of gifts for the owners, Trent and Joey Hemphill, the drivers and employees pooled together their money and donated $1,200 to each of Trent and Joey’s favorite charities, The Bridge Ministry (http://www.bridgeministry.org/) in Trent’s name and The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Middle TN (http://www.midtnwishes.org/) in Joey’s name. As things winded down the evening ended with everyone singing along to Silent Night. Here are a few PHOTOS from this wonderful event.
