16th Annual Pink! Gala Moved To May 21, 2021

Co-Chairs and Theme Announced


CHI Memorial Foundation has rescheduled its annual Pink! gala to  Friday, May 21, 2021, at the Chattanooga Convention Center.  Amy Arrowsmith, Julie Brandao, and Alisa Stipanov will co-chair the Foundation’s 16th annual signature black-tie event. 

“The three of us are so honored and excited to co-chair Pink! this year, since it is our favorite event of the year,” says Arrowsmith.  “Pink! 2021 will be as memorable as ever, complete with amazing ambiance, silent and live auctions.”

This year’s theme is A Night in the Emerald City: There’s No Place Like Home. Stroll with us down the yellow brick road for an evening filled with an exciting and elegant take on a beloved classic and enchantment at every turn.  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.

“The MaryEllen Locher Breast Center is known as a leader in the community for breast screening all the way through treatment, and as a recent breast cancer survivor, I experienced the excellence of the MELBC first hand. The kindness of the staff and physicians, in combination with their professionalism and expertise, was of great comfort to me during a difficult time,” says Stipanov. 

Sponsorship opportunities for Pink! are available now.  Available sponsorships range from $4,000 to $25,000.  Early-bird sponsorship discounts are available through October 15, 2020.  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.  Any remaining individual Pink! tickets go on sale April 1, 2021.

Pink! is a celebration of life for breast cancer patients and survivors that has raised more than $4.7 million since 2006 to ensure our community has access to the most advanced breast cancer treatments available.  “We all know someone in our lives who has experienced breast cancer. Pink! is a great way to honor and celebrate all of these lives,” added Brandao.
