“People love the Gourmet Gala because they get to enjoy a variety of fine wines and dishes from Chattanooga’s top restaurants,” said event chairwoman Leigh Ann Millsaps. “And at the same time, they have the satisfaction of knowing that they’re helping the March of Dimes in its mission to ensure that all babies are born stronger, healthier and full-term.”
This year’s event also promises exciting entertainment as well as live and silent auctions items including dining packages, fine wines and champagnes, travel, and other specialty items, with all proceeds benefiting the March of Dimes.
A few of the auction items include: a vintage Coca-Cola soda machine (it works!), guitar signed by Scotty McCreery and a Pints & Pedals Beer Tour.
