Plans are underway for Erlanger Health System Foundation’s annual Believe Bash, scheduled for April 17 at the Chattanooga Convention Center.

Proceeds from next year’s gala will benefit Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.

The 2021 event co-chairs are Dr. Bryan Johnson, Candy Johnson, Mary Kilbride and Bill Kilbride. The event theme will be “Under the Big Top.”

“Through this event, we will celebrate our big wins and ask others to invest in the future as we work to supplement health care necessities that might not otherwise be available to the public,” Candy Johnson says.

Activities for the evening will include red carpet festivities, cocktail and dinner hours, a live auction and live entertainment, to be announced at a later date.

Proceeds from this year’s Believe Bash are designated for the new Pediatric Outpatient MRI and Procedure Center at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger’s Kennedy Outpatient Center. The new service will allow children and adolescents to receive MRI scans and minor procedures in a space designed for them.

Opened in December 2018, the Kennedy Outpatient Center is a 90,000-square-foot facility built with children in mind. It houses areas designed to be fun and reduce stress and anxiety while providing treatment.

Sponsorship opportunities are available now for Believe Bash 2021. Email foundationevents@erlanger.org or call the foundation office at 423 778-6278 to learn more.
