Alliance Gala planned for next month

-A A +A

Mission Possible! The Roane Alliance believes so, and so goes the theme for this year’s annual Gala on Nov. 9.

Planned as a night of celebrating The Alliance’s successes, it is also an opportunity to go as a favorite “secret agent” — anyone from James Bond to The Pink Panther. Or not, as costumes are optional.

This year will be remembered as one that continued to bring many challenges to The Alliance and its partners.

But it was also one that brought celebrations. The Alliance team landed the Volkswagen distribution center project for Roane County.

This year’s theme, Mission Possible, is a reflection of those successes.

Money raised from the Gala goes toward funding the many programs The Alliance administers throughout the year to make sure quality growth continues for the county.

The focus at The Alliance is to make the economic climate flourish so that Roane County can expand and grow and be as healthy as it can be for all businesses and residents, as well as for all those who do business here.

The evening will begin with a wine reception and dinner, followed with a live auction. A silent auction will take place during the reception and dinner.

The Gala will be in Rothchild’s in West Knoxville.

Individual tickets are available at $150 per person. Sponsorships and tables are also available.

To become a Gala supporter through sponsorships or donations of auction items, call The Roane Alliance at 376-2093.
