1st Annual No Show Ball Chattanooga Is May 11; To Help Critically-Ill And Chronically-Ill Children

Monday, April 15, 2019

The first annual No Show Ball Chattanooga, a fundraiser for a group that helps critically ill and chronically ill Chattanooga children, will be May 11.

Brandi Engle, of the Forrest Spence Fund, said, "The No Show Ball is a play on the truth that most of the fundraisers we participate in are events you actually have to attend. But on the day of the No Show Ball the event comes to you in the form of a dinner in a cooler bag dropped off at your front door."  

The contents inside the cooler include:
Breaded Chicken from Southern Star
Spaghetti with Marinara from IL Primo Restaurant
Green Beans from FoodWorks
Broccoli Salad from Chicken Salad Chick of Chattanooga- Market St.
Dessert "Buntinis" from Nothing Bundt Cakes
Dinner Rolls from The Bread Basket
Wine from Imbibe Wine

*You can choose Sparkling Apple Cider instead of wine. 

The cost of the cooler is $100.

Ms. Engle said, "Just think that you won't have to deal with set menus, raised prices, and lots of crowds Mother's Day weekend but you also don't want to cook so this is a perfect avenue. No Show Ball Coolers make a great gift for others. You can purchase a cooler for someone else and we will deliver it to their front door with a tag that says it’s from you (unless you want it to be anonymous). You can also purchase a cooler for a family in the hospital at the Children's Hospital at Erlanger.  It is a true gift for these families to know the community cares for them."

The following are facts about the Forrest Spence Fund and how the fund has helped those in need within the Chattanooga area.
