The event takes on extra significance this year, with the foundation commemorating its first decade of operation (2006-2016) and the impending opening of its new Education Advancement Center (EAC) at 232 E. 11th Street in Chattanooga. The facility is scheduled to be officially unveiled with an “open house” on Tuesday, Sept. 26. The EAC is designed to facilitate an expansion of foundation services provided to young cancer patients and their families.
The Celebration of Life & Hope – a true “gala with a cause” – annually serves to showcase the Austin Hatcher Foundation’s efforts to fight pediatric cancer both in the Chattanooga area and, increasingly, nationwide. This year, the cumulative numbers reflect those efforts; the foundation has provided services to more than 71,000 young cancer patients and their family members, across 28 states, involving 38 children’s hospitals.
“Our growth into an organization with burgeoning national awareness is rooted in the Chattanooga community and the friendship and support we have received throughout our first 10 years,” said Austin Hatcher Foundation President Amy Jo Osborn. “Our accomplishments are linked to having the Chattanooga community behind us, every step of the way. The Celebration of Life & Hope affords us the opportunity to thank the community for all it has done, while also urging them to remain supportive as we expand awareness of our cause.”
The Celebration of Life & Hope begins with VIP admission from 6-7 p.m. with general admission beginning at 7. “Roaring 20s” or cocktail attire is the theme of the evening. VIP admission is $150; general admission is $100. Eight-person VIP package admission is $1,100; eight-person general admission is $750. Individual VIP upgrades are $50. Both silent and live auctions will raise funds for the Austin Hatcher Foundation
