Chattanooga’s Purple Lady, Sonia Young, is hosting a fundraising dinner for the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera on Jan. 18 at 212 Market Restaurant.
This biennial event’s theme is “An Evening on the Emerald Coast” and will feature a menu of coastal cuisine.

Complementary wines and moonshine cocktails, plus desserts, will also be served.
The CSO String Quintet will provide pre-dinner entertainment. A silent auction will be presented.
Tickets are $200 per person, of which $100 is a direct donation to the CSO. Reservations are being accepted through Jan. 14. Call 267-8583 for more information.
