Roane Alliance gearing up for 2013 Gala

“Magic” is the theme of the 2013 Gala, a major annual fundraising event for The Roane Alliance.
The Gala will be on Nov. 1.
“The Roane Alliance Gala is always kind of a magical event,” said Roane Alliance President/CEO Leslie Henderson. “So it just made sense to embrace that as our theme this year.”
Money raised from the event goes toward funding the many programs The Alliance administers throughout the year to ensure quality growth for Roane County.
“Your support is essential to our future,” said Roane Alliance Board Chairwoman Sharon Templeton.
“We have announced many successes here at The Alliance this past year, but we need your continued help to keep the momentum going,” she added.
The Gala may have a serious purpose, but it is also one of the region’s premier social events.
The festivities begin at 6 p.m. with a wine reception and a silent auction, featuring live music and entertainment throughout, a gourmét meal, a live auction and more.
“So make your plans now to come celebrate all of our magic moments from the past year on Nov. 1,” Henderson said.
“As always, I am sure it will be a night to remember.”
A limited number of major sponsorships are available over the next two weeks.
In addition, tables will also be sold, and individual tickets can be purchased at $150 per person.
Auction donations are also welcome.
To become a Gala supporter through sponsorships, ticket purchases or donations of auction items, call The Roane Alliance at 376-2093.
