 The Annual Gala - a night to celebrate Roane County!  

On this night we celebrate what makes Roane County great and its many accomplishments.  We hope you will join us on this special night, and one of Roane County's largest events!   This event has now been combined with the Roane Chamber's annual awards banquet so this is the only annual fundraising event for the Alliance, and now for the Chamber.  The money raised will go towards funding the Roane Alliance and its programs that are designed to increase Roane County’s economic prosperity, while also shared with the Chamber and its programs that are designed to help and support local businesses grow. This event also provides a focus and a backdrop for networking and relationship-building opportunities locally, regionally and nationally that helps facilitate growth in Roane County.

For sponsorship information or to reserve a table or tickets please contact us at 865-376-2093 ext 200 or





We also are now offering the option for you to donate online!
