Siskin Hospital announces Chris Norton as the guest speaker at the 16th Annual “Possibilities: Siskin Hospital Celebrates Life Beyond Disability” Luncheon on Tuesday, March 5. The Luncheon will be held from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Chattanooga Convention Center.
"The Possibilities Luncheon will also feature an inspirational video that highlights a Siskin Hospital patient who has overcome disability," organizers said. "This miraculous recovery story of love, courage and perseverance shows that with hope, life can be full of possibilities."
Chris Norton was a new college freshman when he was severely injured in a football game, losing all function and feeling from the neck down.
Doctors gave him a three percent chance of ever moving anything below his neck again. But Chris was determined to be among the three percent, and his hard work, perseverance and faith drove him to his feet, first across the graduation platform and then down the wedding aisle.
A dedicated Steering Committee, led by Stan and Betsy McCright, is working with Siskin Hospital staff to help coordinate the luncheon. The Possibilities Luncheon is Siskin Hospital’s only community-wide fundraising event. "The proceeds provide needed services for patients without adequate insurance to cover the cost of their care," organizers said. "Siskin Hospital would like to thank Unum for its continued support as the Premier Event Sponsor of the Possibilities Luncheon for 16 years. Additional thanks go to Brewer Media as the Primary Broadcast Sponsor and the Chattanooga Times Free Press as the Principal Press Sponsor."
Individual tickets to the event are $75. Platinum sponsorship tables of eight are available for $3,000, Crystal sponsorship tables of eight for $2,000 and Patron sponsorship tables of eight for $1,500.
