Roane County, TN - The Roane Alliance will hold its annual Gala on Saturday, November 3 at Volkswagen Group of America in the Roane Regional Business and Technology Park.

The evening will begin at 6 pm with guests being encouraged to dress in black-tie or  holiday attire. Guests can also expect special holiday touches, along with the following: 

  • Wine and beer reception that includes craft beer from Monkey Town Brewery (aka Old Capital Public House),

  • live auction with Auctioneer Bear Stephenson,

“The Gala is the annual fundraiser for the Roane Alliance.  All proceeds go directly to fund the Alliance and its programs,” said Roane Alliance Interim President/CEO Pam May.  “The Alliance provides not only a one-stop shop but also a unified voice and by aligning the Roane County Industrial Development Board, Visitors Bureau and Chamber under one roof that voice can be much stronger, providing better opportunities for economic prosperity for Roane.  We also celebrate the county’s accomplishments for the year during Gala, and this year is no exception, so we hope you will consider joining us and donating to our auction.  It truly is a wonderful life we have here in Roane.”
