Roane Alliance Gala Back in Roane County October 17
Roane County, TN – The 2015 Roane Alliance Gala will be held Saturday, October 17, officials announced today. The red carpet will be rolled out at this year’s annual event, as Volkswagen Group of America once again plays host.
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.
“Even though the Gala is an important fundraiser for the Alliance and for Roane County, it is also one of the area’s premier events” said Roane Alliance Board Chair Dr. Chris Whaley, “and building off of last year’s record-setting event, we are once again planning a night to be remembered. This event is also a night to celebrate the many successes of the year – I hope you will join us on this special night.”
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.

Individual tickets can also be purchased at $150/person. Auction donations are another great way to promote your business.
