A party with a purpose

Pink! gala

The 15th Annual Pink! Gala will be held on Saturday, January 25, 2020, at the Chattanooga Convention Center.  Will and Sarah Clegg, and Rick and Pam McKenney are the co-chairs for the Foundation’s signature black-tie event. 

This year’s theme is Carnaval, complete with festive celebration and samba dancing. 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.

Sponsorships for Pink! are available now and range from $4,000 to $25,000. Sponsorships include valet parking, cocktails, a four course dinner, table-side bar service the evening of the event, entertainment by Party on the Moon as well as an invitation to the sponsor pre-party on the Thursday prior to the event.  Any remaining individual Pink! tickets go on sale December 1, 2019.  Call (423) 495-PINK or email for more information.

Color Chattanooga Pink! T-shirts

We invite you to help us raise awareness by participating in Color Chattanooga Pink the week leading up to the event, January 19-24, 2020. Last year restaurants created new pink drinks or dedicated a portion of their sales for a day, schools had pink out basketball games and there were many other activities throughout the area.  Creativity is encouraged and the sky is the limit!  Our goal is to rally the community behind this important cause and Color Chattanooga Pink!

For printable posters, banners, and the correct logos for Pink! and the MaryEllen Locher Breast Center for your use when Coloring Chattanooga Pink! please send us an email.

Whatever you do share it across the community! You can record a video or take photos and upload them to our Facebook page -, or post to Instagram using #colorchattanoogapink or #PINKnooga. Please make sure to tag us on Facebook @PINKgala or @CHIMemorialMELBC and on Instagram @PinkGalaChatt (while the MaryEllen Locher Scholarship Foundation does wonderful work, we have no affiliation with each other).
