Tickets are now on sale for The Urban League of Greater Chattanooga’s 25th Anniversary Equal Opportunity Day (EOD) Celebration. The fundraising dinner will be held Friday, Dec. 14 at the Chattanooga Convention and Trade Center. This year’s EOD will feature Jennifer Holliday, who starred in the original Dreamgirls Broadway musical, accompanied by the Chattanooga Symphony.
“Our theme this year, The Dream Continues, is about where we have been and where we are headed,” said Warren E. Logan, president of the Urban League of Greater Chattanooga.
"Since the Urban League was first established, we have had the same mission: economic empowerment, education and youth empowerment, leadership empowerment…and that hasn’t changed. People are going to see our original mission threaded throughout this year’s EOD but also get a glimpse of the big things we have planned for the future. As the dream continues, we are excited to celebrate with the Chattanooga community our achievements.”
Co-chairs for this year’s affair are Ruth Holmberg, one of the founders of the Urban League of Greater Chattanooga, and Charlesetta Woodard-Thompson. Honorary co-chairs are Sen. Robert Corker, Rep. Zach Wamp, City Mayor Ron Littlefield and County Mayor Claude Ramsey.
