Be a part of the 2014 Gala as The Roane Alliance brings it home - to Roane County!  The event will be held Saturday, November 8 at the Volkswagen Distribution Center in the Roane Regional Business & Technology Park.  The evening will begin at 6 pm with a wine and beer reception and silent auction.  Roane County's own Janelle Arthur will be performing during the event, with a special 'meet 'n greet' prior to the event just for the Title Sponsors.  Kingston's newest restaurant - Gloria Jeans - will be catering the event in an homestyle setting.  Also, a live - not to mention entertaining - auction, presented by Bear Stephenson, will be part of the evening; while lively music will be provided by DJ Ryan Ladd.  The event is black tie optional.  The Gala is the primary annual fundraising event for The Alliance and we are so excited to finally bring it home to Roane County for the very first time.  For The Roane Alliance to continue its mission, we need people like you who also believe in our mission of developing our local economy.  Tickets are $150/person for open seating and tables of eight can be reserved for $1,200.  Sponsorships are still available by calling the Roane Alliance at 865-376-2093 but we are nearing capacity so CALL TODAY!

2012 Alliance Gala - Mission Possible!

Mission Possible was the theme for the 2012 Roane Alliance Gala  and it was all about celebrating the successes of the year.  And boy did lots of supporters come out to help us celebrate - or should we say "secret agents."  James Bond - along with many Bond girls, James West, and Agent 99 were just a few of the fun characters that came out to enjoy the evening.  To view more photos visit Pavel Studios Photography.

2011 Gala was a Cabaret - and a Hit!

As the hit song from the musical Cabaret goes, "Come taste the wine, come hear the band...right this way, your table's waiting," so did the invitation to the 2011 Alliance Gala.  And did they ever! It not only reached a milestone - it's 10th year - and turned out to be one of the "best ever," as attendees were overheard saying, but there were also many highlights this year.  There were more donors than ever as well as more attendees and table sponsors than in recent years.

"One of the most gratifying parts about this year's Gala is how much support we got even though times have been tough for many of us," said Leslie Henderson, President/CEO of The Roane Alliance.
