Fall Ball: GLOW Redux To Support Community Health Initiatives Set For Nov. 5

Tuesday, August 2, 2022
Physicians, community leaders and friends will come together for the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Medical Society and Foundation’s Annual Fall Ball: Glow Redux. The event will be held on Nov. 5 at Stratton Hall. Tickets are on sale at ChattMD.org.
 
This annual fundraiser helps support the Project Access community health partnership, the LifeBridge Physician Wellbeing Initiative, youth educational programs and a wide range of community health initiatives.
 
Glow Redux is presented by Henderson Hutcherson & McCullough CPAs.
The evening will feature great food, seasonal cocktails and beverages, dancing to a live DJ, a karaoke lounge, a sports lounge with live football on big screen TVs, a silent auction and many surprises. Entertainment will be provided by SoundForce. Attendees are invited to attend in evening attire highlighting their best inner GLOW and colors.
 
“The Fall Ball is one of Chattanooga’s premier events, and GLOW Redux will be no exception,” said Rae Bond, Medical Society and Foundation chief executive officer. “We want the community to know how much we appreciate the gifts they share to support our programs to improve community health.”
 
Project Access connects uninsured residents of Hamilton County with specialty care, hospital care and other services. It has coordinated $217 million in donated health care to the working poor since its inception in April 2004. For each dollar spent on program operations, $20 in charity care is generated for those who have urgent health care needs and few other resources.
 
“Project Access saves lives,” Mrs. Bond said. “The funds we raise at Glow Redux support this work so that we can continue to help as many people as possible.
 
“The Fall Ball also supports our LifeBridge physician well-being program, and provides a safety net of resources for doctors who are at risk of burnout. The program tries to care for our caregivers.
 
“Event proceeds also support future doctors. The Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine and Medical Explorations programs offer opportunities for high school and college students to job shadow local physicians and participate in medical vocation education. Some of our graduates now are in medical schools and residencies.”
 
Glow Redux is open to the public. Table sponsorships are available and individual tickets are $125. To purchase your table or tickets, call the Medical Society at 622-2872 or visit www.chattdenim.net. Sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information, contact Kevin Lusk at 423-622-2872 or kevin@chattmd.org.
