Roane Alliance Gala
October 17, 2015
Evening begins at 6 pm
Hosted by Volkswagen Group of America

Plans are underway to roll out the red carpet for this year's Annual Roane Alliance Gala, again to be held in Roane County, hosted by Volkswagen Group of America.  As the primary annual fundraising event for The Alliance, the money raised from the Gala goes toward funding Roane County’s economic development programs that are administered by the Alliance.   The evening begins with a walk down the red carpet starting at 6 pm.  Enjoy a reception, silent and live auctions, live music by Chris Hennessee, a gourmet dinner, and dancing.

Sponsorships and tables of eight can be purchased and is not only a great way to support the Roane Alliance but also to promote your business – and the sooner you become a supporter the more promotions you will receive.  Individual tickets can also be purchased at $150/person.  Auction donations are another great way to promote your business.  Popular donations in the past have been specialty and gourmet baskets, spa and personal care certificates, restaurant or travel packages – just to name a few.  To become a Gala supporter through sponsorships, ticket purchases, or donations of auction items call the Roane Alliance at 865-376-2093 or stop by at 1209 N. Kentucky Street, Kingston, Monday through Friday 8 am – 5pm.  October 10th is the deadline for being listed as a donor in the program so call soon.

Look at the Fun We've Had

Welcome Home 2014 Gala!

The 2014 Gala is behind us and will always be remembered as many firsts - 1st to be in Roane County, first to have the most guests ever - nearly 500, and first to have Roane County's own idol Janelle Arthur perform.  Not to mention the excitement that filled the air.   The event could not have been the huge success it was without our sponsors:  Title (co) Sponsor: CROET/Akins Public Strategies; Gold Sponsors: EnergySolutions, Oak Ridge Utility District, Omni Visions, and Proton Power; and Silver Sponsors: Centrus, Pro2Serve, Rick Cox Construction, and Roane Medical Center.
Here are a few of the photos.  For more visit the Roane Alliance Facebook page.

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.

The 2010 Gala was a Night of Hollywood Stars
