The Saint Thomas Rutherford Foundation presents the Sixth annual Wine Around the Square!

Benefitting the Power of Pink, Rutherford County's premier fundraising program for breast cancer detection and treatment. Join us this year Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017 for another year of great fun!


Please take a look at our 2017 WATS video. Founder and Co-Chair Patty Marschel and Co-Chair Dave Davis tell the story of why Wine Around the Square is so important to the Rutherford County community.

Take a look at our 2016 video on WATS!

Last year...with your help and support, we raised $200,595 and more than 1100 people enjoyed the 2016 Wine Around the Square, strolling the Square, talking with friends and listening to music while enjoying wine tastings, premium liquors and beers, and a farm-to-table buffet supper, thanks to area restaurants, caterers and farms. 

Special thanks to all of the guests, vendors, in-kind media sponsors and volunteers who gave so much to make last year's event possible---please plan to join us again this year!

Now, hundreds of underinsured and uninsured Rutherford County women will have access all year long to diagnostic breast treatment, mammogram screenings and education, and lives will be saved by early detection.

The Power of Pink program was begun 13 years ago to provide financial support for the Saint Thomas Health/Susan G. Komen/Power of Pink “Our Mission in Motion” mobile mammography coach, to provide mammograms for indigent women in Rutherford County at the Center for Breast Health.


Thank you for raising your glass and supporting the Power of Pink, benefitting Rutherford County women in the fight against breast cancer!

Remember what it’s all about . . . helping our own friends and neighbors who are underinsured and uninsured and need potentially life-saving mammograms!

Over the past 12 years, the Power of Pink has raised more than $1,075,000 for the fight against breast cancer in our own Rutherford County community. The fund raised more than $275,000 in FY 2017 (ending June 30, 2017). WATS 2016 raised $200,595, providing approximately 73% of this total.

During FY 2017, the Power of Pink sponsored:

  • 295 screening mammograms.
  • 131 diagnostic mammograms.
  • 111 breast ultrasounds.
  • 3 breast MRIs.

These numbers represent women in our own community who have received breast cancer screening services which they otherwise could not afford. Continued support of Wine Around the Square is critical to the Power of Pink Fund!

Early Detection Saves Lives!

Terri Sterling - Friday, August 11, 2017

3D mammography is proven to diagnose breast cancer 15 months earlier than 2D mammography. Early detection saves lives! We believe all women in our community should have access to the diagnostic health care they need.

Proceeds from Wine Around the Square 2016 provided $16,459.56 to fund maintenance and operational expenses for the Mobile Mammography Coach and $15,000 in annual funding for a Nurse Navigator who assists Rutherford County women throughout their breast cancer diagnosis. Your support will help raise the necessary funds to bring uninsured and underinsured women the diagnostic care they need where they live and work.

Help us fight breast cancer in Rutherford County. Join us for a night of fun benefitting a great cause!

We couldn't do it without Stones River Total Beverages!

Terri Sterling - Tuesday, July 04, 2017

Every year, Stones River Total Beverages at 208 N. Thompson Lane in Murfreesboro works for months in advance to procure all of the wine, beer and spirits for Wine Around the Square. They work so hard and ask their producers and distributors to do the same. We couldn't do it without them!

A little bit of history about Charlie Patel and Stones River Total Beverages: In October 1996 they opened a small shop across from the Stones River Mall consisting of about 2400 square feet. After three years, they decided to build a large place so they can offer more selection and buy in bulk to pass more savings on to their customers.

Now they are at 15,000 square feet and one of Tennessee's largest stores. With a large selection of wine, liquor, beer and fine cigars, Stones River Total Beverages still offers case discounts, so grab a cart and start shopping.

And when you do stop in and shop with them, please tell owner Charlie Patel, manager Angela Lacy and their team a great big Thank You!

Take a look at their Website at: be sure to like their Facebook page at

This is year #5 for Wine Around the Square, a great night of wine tastings, beer tastings, liquor tastings, lots of great food, live music and fun outside around the historic downtown Square in Murfreesboro.

It's all for a great cause---raising money for diagnostic breast cancer tests for women who are uninsured and underinsured.  Every single penny raised goes directly to this great cause---all expenses are underwritten by Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital. 

We couldn't do it without scores of volunteers and people who give so freely of their time, energy, commitment and resources.

***All of the wonderful restaurants who donate great food for our guests, including the Parthenon, Christie BBQ, The Goat, Blue Coast Burrito, The Alley, Slick Pig and so many others that are in the works right now...

***The great musicians like Frazier & Company, and entertainers from the Center of the Arts (they're going to be back this year!)

***The 40-plus volunteers on the leadership team, plus the scores of others who help put the event on, including our Trio of leaders:  Patty Marschel, Rita Ash and Caroline Lampley. 

And so many more...take a look at the photo shoot we did this week for VIP Magazine (thanks Carrie Beth Catron!), featuring VIP Party Co-Chairs Kit Ramsey, Mary White and Mary Hatcliff.  The VIP Party will be held at the beautiful environment of Daffodilly Design on Vine Street, owned by Lori Sain Smith.  Special thanks to Angel Pardue of Angel Pardue Photography for her great work at the shoot.
