St. John's Restaurant Hosts 5-Course Wine Dinner Benefiting The Children's Hospital

Tuesday, August 30, 2016

St. John’s Restaurant is inviting the community to support Chattanooga’s children at their “Be A Saint” dinner on Sept. 11. The five-course wine dinner will benefit Erlanger’s “Believe Campaign” to build a new Children’s Hospital.

The dinner will be prepared and paired by St. John’s Executive Chef Rebecca Barron and Sommelier Michelle Richards. The event will keep to its “Be A Saint” theme by pairing all five courses with hand selected “saint” wines. 

"We love being a part of such a generous community in Chattanooga," said Josh Carter, owner of St. John's Restaurant. "We are always looking for ways to get involved and give back to the community that has supported us for the last 16 years." 

The Children’s Hospital at Erlanger is the only hospital serving children and families across the region. The new Children’s Hospital Outpatient Center will be innovatively designed to engage children, distract them from their illness and meet the complex needs of both families and physicians. The state-of-the-art facility will also help attract the best medical professionals from around the world, said officials. 

The evening will begin with a cocktail hour at 5 p.m., followed by a formal dinner at the James Beard nominated restaurant. The event will bring together community leaders from across the region to celebrate the Children’s Hospital at Erlanger’s growth and raise funds so that it can continue to serve children and families. 

The number of children within the service area of the Children’s Hospital is projected to grow 30 to 50 percent over the next 40 years. 

Tickets to the dinner are $250 per guest, all-inclusive with a limited number of seats available at the CEOs table for $300 and can be purchased at
