St. John’s Restaurant presented a $15,000 check to Children’s Hospital at Erlanger. Josh Carter, owner of St. John’s, hosted the “Be a Saint” wine dinner in September benefiting the Believe Campaign to build a new Children’s Hospital.

 

“We are thankful to the Chattanooga community for joining us in supporting this very important project,” said Carter.

“There are few things as important as the health of our children. The success of this year’s event encouraged us to make this an annual fundraising and awareness event for the Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.”

 

“Be a Saint” guests were treated to a five course meal, prepared by St. John’s Executive Chef Rebecca Barron and Sommelier Michelle Richards, paired with selected “saint” wines. 

 

“We are incredibly thankful for the generous donation made by those who attended the event at St. John’s,” said Julie Taylor, Chief Development Officer and President of Erlanger Health System Foundations. “As the only hospital serving children and families across the region, Children’s Hospital at Erlanger is a resource we simply cannot do without.  One hundred percent of the money raised for the Believe Campaign will stay local and will go towards building a new Children’s Hospital ensuring continued quality care to our patients now and into the future.”

Why do we allow one or two or three repeat vandals to mar our venerable Walnut Street Bridge, the pillars to the Holmberg Bridge, the remodeled Chief John Ross Market Street Bridge, the walls along our multi-million-dollar Riverwalk, our sidewalks, street signs and our old limestone ...
