Journey: 2020 An Evening In Bali To Benefit Hospice Of Chattanooga Foundation

Wednesday, February 5, 2020

Hospice of Chattanooga Foundation has announced Matthew Ballard and Daisy Maurya-Ballard as the event chairs and the event committee for Journey 2020: An Evening in Bali.

The Balinese-themed Journey 2020 gala, which starts at 6 p.m. at the Chattanooga Convention Center on Saturday, March 7, is the foundation’s third annual premier fundraiser in support of their free grief support and counseling services, available to anyone in the 22 counties they serve.

The Ballards said, “We believe that raising money and awareness for the grief support programs are a way for them to share the love, hope and peace they have received from Hospice of Chattanooga. In 2016, they experienced hospice care during the illness and loss of Daisy’s mother, and Hospice of Chattanooga helped their family through every stage of her mother’s illness and later death.”

Mrs. Maurya-Ballard is partner, owner and operator of Willow Street Properties alongside her husband, Mr. Ballard.  Mr. Ballard is a realtor with Uptown Firm specializing in commercial and residential investment real estate. They are longtime Chattanooga residents who love to travel in their free time.

“With grateful hearts we sincerely offer our thanks to Daisy and Matthew for their gifts of time, effort and leadership with Journey 2020," said Tracy Wood, president and CEO of Hospice of Chattanooga. "Our grief support programs mean so much to so many families who need the compassion, love and hope Hospice of Chattanooga can give them." 

Journey 2020: An Evening in Bali features an elegant and fun evening of cocktails, silent auction, four-course dinner and program, and after party including dancing to The Downtown Band, casino games, and more.

Individual tickets are $300, tables are $2000, and sponsorships begin at $5,000. All proceeds benefit Hospice of Chattanooga’s grief support and counseling services available to anyone in Chattanooga and the surrounding 22 counties of southeast Tennessee, western North Carolina, and north Georgia that Hospice of Chattanooga serves.
