HullaBOWLoo Returns To Chattanooga Area Food Bank Warehouse

Monday, April 22, 2019

The Chattanooga Area Food Bank will welcome home its signature fundraiser, HullaBOWLoo, presented by Adman Electric, on Saturday, April 27. This year’s event will be hosted at the Food Bank’s 40,000-square-foot warehouse at 2009 Curtain Pole Road from 7-10 p.m.

The evening will feature a live performance from Michel Jons Band, a silent auction of premium items, and food and beverage tastings from local restaurants and businesses. A limited number of tickets are available for the VIP garden party from 6-7 p.m. in the Evelyn Davenport Navarre Teaching Garden pavilion featuring tastings from Il Primo and Chattanooga Whiskey. 

“We’re thrilled to welcome HullaBOWLoo back home to the Food Bank’s warehouse and have the honor of sharing with our guests how their ticket purchase directly helps families in need," said Gina Crumbliss, president and CEO of the Food Bank. "It is awe-inspiring to see our inventory of 1.5 million pounds firsthand. But, without the community’s generous support of events like HullaBOWLoo, it would be empty in just three weeks.”

General admission is $100 and VIP admission is $125. Online ticket purchases and donations can be made until April 26 at chattfoodbank.org. Ticket purchases and donations can also be made by mail until April 15.  Make checks payable to Chattanooga Area Food Bank and include HullaBOWLoo in the memo line.

One in five children and one in eight adults experience hunger in Southeast Tennessee and Northwest Georgia. Every dollar raised through ticket purchases and at the event helps to provide four meals to families, children, seniors and veterans in need.
