Town and Gown Ball to benefit classroom enhancement

You are invited to the fourth annual Town and Gown Ball on Saturday, October 9. The event celebrates university and community partnerships and benefits The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Classroom Enhancement Fund. The ball will be held at the Sheraton Read House Silver Ballroom.

This special evening begins at 7 p.m. with cocktails and music by the Chattanooga Jazz Quartet. At 8 p.m., there will be a delicious dinner and dancing with music provided by The Shani Hedden Review.

Since its inception, the Town and Gown Ball has raised almost $100,000 for classroom and laboratory enhancements. Some of the campus projects receiving Town and Gown Ball support include upgrades to the zoology and physiology labs, renovating painting studios and photography darkrooms, and improvements to the auditorium in Grote Hall.

The “Ladies of the Ball” planning this year’s event include Lynn Anderson, Lorraine Brown, Margaret Card, Beverly Cosley, Missy Crutchfield, Ruth Obear, Brenda Purcell, Sue Stacy, Mary Tanner, and Cheryl Whitfield.

“UTC is a vital part of the economic engine that drives our community,” said Anderson. “The community must understand the campus’ role and the interaction that begins with events like the town and Gown Ball are multiplied many times over.”
