Roane Alliance Annual Gala - Welcome Home!

Did you attend the 2014 Gala?  Would you take our quick survey?  We would love to get your feedback!

Another Gala is behind us but this one will always be remembered as many firsts - 1st to be in Roane County, to have the most guests ever - nearly 500, and to have Roane County's own idol Janelle Arthur perform.  Not to mention the excitement that filled the air.  The Gala is the primary annual fundraising event for The Alliance and we were so excited to finally bring it home to Roane County for the very first time - and people responded by coming out in support.

It could not have been the wonderful night it was if not for our gracious host - Volkswagen Group of America.  Our sponsors were also instrumental in making this one of the most successful Gala's in recent memory so thank you to our Title (co) Sponsor: CROET/Akins Public Strategies; our Gold Sponsors: EnergySolutions, Oak Ridge Utility District, Omni Visions, and Proton Power; and our Silver Sponsors: Centrus, Pro2Serve, Rick Cox Construction, and Roane Medical Center.

Plans are already being discussed for next year's Gala - please call the Alliance if you would like to become involved.

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.

"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.

Matt Pavel, Pavel Studio Photography, took all the wonderful photos.
