CHI Memorial Foundation announces the 15th annual Pink! Gala will be held on Saturday, Jan. 25, 2020, at the Chattanooga Convention Center.  Will and Sarah Clegg and Rick and Pam McKenney will co-chair the Foundation’s signature black-tie event.  

This year’s theme is "Carnaval," complete with festive celebration, samba dancing and masquerade. 

"All proceeds from Pink! stay here in our community to ensure the MaryEllen Locher Breast Center at CHI Memorial has the latest equipment and technology available, and provides the highest quality care available to women in need," organizers said.
 
Since the MaryEllen Locher Breast Center opened in 2007, more than 315,000 screening and diagnostic mammograms have been performed at the Center’s three locations and on the two mobile mammography coaches.  Nearly 3,300 primary breast cancers have been diagnosed at the Center since it opened.

Sponsorship opportunities for Pink! are available.  Available sponsorships range from $4,000 to $25,000.  Sponsorships include valet parking, cocktails, a four course dinner, table-side bar service the evening of the event and entertainment by Party on the Moon, as well as an invitation to the sponsor pre-party on the Thursday prior to the event.  Any remaining individual Pink! tickets go on sale Dec. 1.  

"Pink! is a celebration of life for breast cancer patients and survivors that has raised more than $4 million since 2006 to ensure our community has access to the most advanced breast cancer treatments available," organizers said.
