Fundraisers, music and more returning to Columbia this weekend


Stop by Morning Pointe in Spring Hill during January, where the retirement home is accepting donations of winter clothing to be donated to Center of Hope in Columbia.

The weekend roundup of events returns this weekend with several opportunities to get involved by giving to those in need or enjoying a lively night of music in Columbia.

1. The Giving Tree at Morning Pointe

he Giving Tree event is not just for the weekend, but the entire month of January.

The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, located at 1003 McCutcheon Creek Lane in Spring Hill, will host a Giving Tree clothing drive all month, and is seeking clothes of all sizes for men, women and children.

Items can include winter coats, hats, gloves and other cold weather gear. All donations will be donated to Center of Hope in Columbia.

“It’s not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving” is the drive’s motto.

For information on how/what to donate, contact The Lantern Program Director Mallory Mullins at (615) 275-5752 or email

2. Hockey club kickoff at Boondox

The Next Door Boys will be one of the bands featured at The Boondox during this Saturday's fundraiser for L United youth hockey league.

One of Columbia’s local venues will host a special night of live music, which will also help launch a brand new youth hockey league.

The Boondox, 3543 Highway 431, will host a night of music in an effort to kickoff L United, a new Nashville-based youth hockey club available to kids at no charge, which is set to kick off in the fall of 2021. The program is also an outreach for recently discharged veterans, who will serve as coaches and mentors.

The event begins at 6 p.m. Saturday. The music lineup includes Presley Tennant (“The Voice” Season 16 – Team Kelly), Chris Turner, Clayton Q and The Next Door Boys.

There will also be an auction to raise additional funds for the league.

3. Winter clothing giveaway

Set Apart Kingdom Ministries will partner with Mt. Lebanon Church in Columbia this Saturday for a clothing giveaway, which is looking to donate to the area's homeless and low-income families.

Mt. Lebanon Church, 218 E. 8th St., will partner with Set Apart Kingdom Ministries to give away free coats, caps, gloves and other winter clothing from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. 

This is also a drive the church plans to host periodically throughout the year.

“We’re looking to target the homeless community and homeless people, and also low-income families. We feel that helping those people out should be a priority,” Pastor Richard Woodson said. “I was taken aback when I realized how many homeless people we really have here. We’re looking to do an outreach here every 3-4 months, whether it’s serving food or giving away clothing, or anything like that where we can make an impact in the community.”

Chili and desserts, such as cake, pie and brownies, will also be served.

4. Third annual Tenn Pin Open

Tenn Pin Alley will host its third annual Tenn Pin Open tournament this Sunday, with a cash prize of $1,500.

A weekend at the local bowling alley is always a good time, especially when there’s a chance to go home with $1,500.

Tenn Pin Alley, 730 Mooresville Pike, invites bowlers to its third annual open tournament on Sunday.

Cost is $100 per person, with a max of 72 bowlers. Last year’s tournament sold out, so those who wish to participate are encouraged to act fast.
