Salvation Army Of Greater Chattanooga Celebrates 125 Years Of Service With Fundraising Banquet

Tuesday, August 21, 2018
The Salvation Army of Greater Chattanooga is celebrating 125 years of service in the Chattanooga region on Thursday, Aug. 23, 6 p.m., at the Chattanooga Trade and Convention Center. Since 1893, The Army has been “doing the most good” with the time, money and resources given them, and providing help, hope, healing to those in need.

Over 500 people are schedule to attend this event featuring guest speaker Jonathan Evans, son of Tony Evans, author, speaker, chaplain for the Dallas Cowboys and former NFL fullback.
Mr. Evans treasures his relationship with Christ, along with the opportunity to use his life to glorify God by equipping and encouraging people in their faith. Together with his father, Mr. Evans is the author of the book, Get in the Game: A Spiritual Workout for Athletes.

Jonathan’s brother, Anthony Evans, is the musical guest. Anthony began his career as a backup singer for gospel music sensation Kirk Franklin. He has released 8 albums, performed over 2000 concerts and appeared on the NBC show, The Voice. Although grateful for career opportunities, Anthony never forgets his first calling to lead God’s people in authentic and honest worship.

Because the banquet is underwritten by a gracious donor, all proceeds raised through the event go directly to the life-saving services of The Salvation Army.

“We are grateful for the outpouring of support from the community, corporate sponsors and our Advisory Board members,” said Major Mark Smith, who recently moved with his wife, Major Chiffonia Smith, to the Chattanooga Area Command. “We expect that God has something exciting for each person in attendance.”

Individuals interested in supporting the work of The Salvation Army can make a donation online at www.csarmy.org, or by calling 1-800-Sal-Army.

The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in 1865, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination for 130 years in the United States. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. 82 cents of every dollar received is used to carry out those services in 5,000 communities nationwide.
