Northside Neighborhood House’s upcoming fall fundraising event will be held Thursday, Oct. 2 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Track 29. “Taste of Northshore – Sample of Southside & the Not-So-Silent Auction promises to be an evening filled with urban sophistication, culinary delights and energetic live entertainment," organizers said.
“This interactive, lively fundraiser helps support Northside Neighborhood House programs that offer neighbors in need a hand up during difficult times,” says Brianne Carswell, development director of Northside Neighborhood House.
“Through our Direct Assistance program, we offer assistance with utility payments and emergency food while also working through budgeting to help our neighbors become self-sufficient. We also offer education programming for children through high school and for adults who are pursuing their GEDs. Our recently added Healthy Families Program is aimed at providing incredible supports to our neighbors and their families."
At the event, guests will savor samples of some of Chattanooga’s eateries, cafés, restaurants and bakeries while taking part in the silent auction.

“This has been an incredibly busy year for the NNH—with the organization celebrating its 90th birthday and serving more neighbors in need than ever before,” says Ms. Carswell. “With the increasing number of people served, we have developed new collaborations with many local organizations and continue to be committed to providing a hand up to our neighbors. We couldn’t do this without the generous support of our community.”
