NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Convention Center Authority in Nashville has announced a donation of $500,000 to the COVID-19 Response Fund on behalf of the Music City Center.

"As we face these volatile and uncertain times, the one thing we can all do is find ways to support one another," said Music City Center President and CEO Charles Starks. "We cannot predict when businesses will return to any degree of normality and want to offer help to our community of workers and families who have been furloughed or displaced."

The Music City Center is making the donation solely through its operating revenues.

Music City Center representatives also say they are committed to taking care of employees and their families. Staff are being fully compensated, as team members are working remotely.

The United Way COVID-19 Response Fund and donations made to it are meant to support those in the community who are facing hardships due to the coronavirus pandemic.
