Thanks to the support of over 100 Chattanooga residents, the Bethlehem Center raised $27,450 at a morning fundraiser, the Breakfast of Champions.
"Proceeds from the event will help the Bethlehem Center continue to provide a safe haven for children grades kindergarten through eighth in Chattanooga as well as STEM, learning expeditions and homework help for about 185 students of the Read to Lead Academy," officials said.
“It was inspirational and a great way to start the day,” said Gloria Dubose, projects and marketing manager for the Bethlehem Center. “I feel like the event is one of those ‘best kept secrets’ and everyone who attends leaves encouraged and ready to get involved in their community.”
