“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.  Next guests will engage in Northside Neighborhood House’s live auction.  Participating restaurants to date include:  1885 Grill, 212 Market Restaurant, Alice’s Catering, Aquarium Foods Catering, B’s Sweets, Bluewater, Biba’s Italian Restaurant, Café on the Corner, Dipped Fresh, Dish T’ Pass Cooking School and Catering Co., Earthfare, Foodworks, Gipsy Gourmet, Lee Towery Catering, Lupi’s Pizza Pies, Mike’s Hole in the Wall, Mindy B’s Deli, Mount Vernon, Noodles and Company, On the List Catering, Poblano’s Mexican Bar & Grill, Primo, Public House, Root Kitchen and Wine Bar, Southern Star, The Big Table, The Walden Club, Tremont Tavern and Vine Street Market.

Updates of the auction items and featured eateries will be posted on the Northside Neighborhood House’s Web site at nnhouse.org.  

Tickets for the event are $60 per person or $600 for a table of 10.  Tickets can be purchased online at nnhouse.org or contact Brianne with the Northside Neighborhood House at 267-2217.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their competitive spirits and be ready to bid on items offered at the live interactive auction.  Bids on all items are $10 and under. There will also be a silent auction and a chance to bid on several vacation packages. The event has sold out for the past six years so people are encouraged to purchase tickets soon.

“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.”
