Wednesday, August 21, 2019

The Salvation Army of Greater Chattanooga will open the doors and welcome approximately 400 guests to its 2019 Doing the Most Good Fundraising Banquet on Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Chattanooga Convention Center.

"This year we will hear stories from behind the shield as Sunny 92.3’s morning host, James Howard, interviews individuals whose lives are completely changed thanks to The Salvation Army ministries ," officials said. 
 
“This year’s banquet is unique in that our main speakers will be individuals from right here in Chattanooga whose life trajectory is completely different from what they could have imagined thanks to our donors and staff,” said Major Mark Smith, Salvation Army area commander.

“I am also excited at the concert we will have that evening as well.”
 
Following the on-stage interviews from James Howard, The Voices of Lee will be performing. 
The Voices of Lee is a 15-member a cappella ensemble from Lee University in Cleveland. Founded September 1994, the president of Lee University, Dr. Paul Conn, wanted to make a new group to represent the university. "Excellence in harmony, spirit and performance depicts the lush musical style of The Voices of Lee," officials said. "Since their debut in September '94, their intense musical focus has captivated audiences worldwide. Directed by Danny Murray, this 15-member group is characterized by their unique variety of lush vocal harmonies, high-energy patriotic numbers and fun-filled audience participation, as well as heart-felt gospel favorites."
