Auction Chairmen


Auction Chairmen, Rebecca Rutledge, Carter Dawson, and Amy Richards, welcome you to the 2017 Swan Ball Auction. We have curated an amazing list of trips, experiences, and luxury items to tempt even the most discerning of buyers. There is a little something for everybody: the Outdoorsman, the Music Lover, the Golfer, the Fashionista, the Thespian, the Sports Fan, and the list goes on. Whether you want to travel near or far, or whether you’d like a romantic getaway for 2 or a family trip for 16, it is all here. The one thing you can be assured of is the impeccable quality of each of our lots. Many items listed here offer unique experiences only available to the Swan Ball Auction. Check back soon to start browsing and find where you want to go!


We could not have offered such fantastic items without the hard work and dedication of our amazing Auction Committee. This team of 50 members worked tirelessly to provide wonderful items and travel opportunities, many with unique one of a kind perks that they pulled out all the stops to get. Needless to say, the continuous support of the Swan Ball Chairmen, Amy Liz Riddick and Jody Hull, has been invaluable. Most importantly, the Swan Ball Auction would not exist without the extraordinary generosity of our donors, and we invite you to support their businesses as much as they support Cheekwood.


All money raised in this auction goes directly to support the daily operations of Nashville’s Cheekwood Museum of Art and Botanical Gardens. Please join us in supporting Cheekwood and helping to ensure the stability and future of this Nashville treasure.


We look forward to seeing you at the Auction Party on May 18th at Belle Meade Country Club. Check back soon to start bidding!
