Denim & Diamonds

Chattanooga physicians and community leaders will come together at 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 5, 2016, at the Chattanooga Convention Center for an evening of music and food, and a celebration of healing. The event will be the 11th annual Denim and Diamonds fundraiser, which helps support the Project Access community health partnership and other community health initiatives. The event is organized by the Chattanooga Hamilton-County Medical Society, Medical Foundation of Chattanooga, and Medical Alliance.

The evening will include dinner, dancing, live and silent auctions, and lots of surprises.  

An online auction will take place before the event to encourage community-wide participation in raising funds for Project Access. The site will go live in February 2016.

Project Access has provided $130 million in charity health care to the working poor since its inception in April 2004. Since the program began, more than 12,000 individuals have been evaluated for eligibility. Each month an average of 400 patients are actively receiving care or finalizing enrollment. Those who do not qualify for the program are referred to other appropriate community resources and programs.  

The event is open to the public. Table sponsorships are available starting at $1,500. Individual tickets are $125. To purchase your table or tickets, call the Medical Society at 622-2872.

Sponsorship opportunities, including exclusive sponsorships, are available ranging from $500 to $10,000. Opportunities include exclusive sponsorships of activities and events. For more information, contact Kevin Lusk at 622-2872.
