Celebrate Venice: A Denim and Diamonds Event

Join us on Saturday, March 2, 20198 at Stratton Hall for Celebrate Venice as we celebrate another year of caring for patients through Project Access.

Fourteen years ago, the first Denim and Diamonds fundraising event was hosted and has quickly become the favorite non-traditional gala of Chattanooga. This year Denim and Diamonds is taking on a new look and a new theme:

Celebrate Venice: A Denim and Diamonds Event. 

Celebrate Venice is the largest fundraiser for Project Access, a referral program that provides free healthcare for the working poor in Hamilton County, or those who don't qualify for government healthcare assistance and are unable to afford it through their employer. Since April of 2004, Project Access has provided $178 million of donated healthcare to individuals in the program and is fortunate to have more than 1,100 area physicians, the ErlangerCHI Memorial and Parkridge health systems,Kindred and Siskin hospitals, community health centers and numerous other health care providers as its partners. 

For more than 14 years, Hamilton County Project Access has literally changed the lives of its patients giving them the gift of health. A welder is able to return to work after a battle with cancer.  A grandmother is able to see her newly born grandchild thanks to improved eyesight.  A life-long athlete is able to run again after a knee replacement. These are just some of the stories we hear every day from grateful patients enrolled in Project Access.

Help us share and continue the story of Project Access by making plans to attend Celebrate Venice this year!

Ticket Information:

Tickets for Once Upon a Time can be purchased online at this link. You may also call the Medical Foundation of Chattanooga at 622-2872 to purchase your tickets. Individual tickets are $150 and corporate tables are available as well. 

This year's theme is rooted in the Carnevale atmosphere of Venice, Italy. We have a wonderful evening planned that will transport you to the sights and sounds of a Venetian evening during the annual Carnevale celebration. 

What to wear for Carnevale? We love seeing your costumes so we've provided a few images for inspiration. Gowns, masks, fans, extravagance, indulgence are just a few words to keep in mind while planning your costume. Of course, if you're not a fan of costumes, black tie optional attire with a mask would be perfect. 

Every Project Access partner provides their services absolutely free of charge to the patient.

Thank you to our generous sponsors:
