Murfreesboro, TN - The 4th Annual Taste of Stones River, held at The Avenue Murfreesboro this past Saturday, raised over $56,000 for the Primary Care & Hope Clinic. The tremendous success of the event proves this to be a strong family event that continues to be supported by the community. This year, forty-six restaurants participated by serving specialty items that are unique to their establishment.
