The theme is Diamonds & Denim, with the evening beginning at 6 pm with a wine reception, followed by dinner, awards ceremony and live auction.  Enjoy an evening with friends, network with community leaders and stakeholders, capture special memories on the red carpet and roaming selfie stations, and bid on trips, jewelry, memorabilia, guns and more!  Roane County’s own Celebrity Kent Stephens will be back as the Master of Ceremonies and it wouldn’t be the same without Roane’s favorite auctioneer, Bear Stephensen.  Join us as we celebrate your fellow businesses and leaders as they are honored as the best of the best.

 “This event is a fundraiser for the Roane Alliance,” said President Pam May, Roane Alliance, “with all the proceeds raised funding the County’s economic development organization, providing a one stop shop for businesses, industry, prospects, visitors and retirees to find why they should consider Roane County.  I hope you will join us in your shiniest of diamonds and a little bit of denim – and black tie is always welcome!”
