Will Reeve to speak at luncheon

Co-chairs John and Marilyn Boxell - Submitted

Will Reeve will be the guest speaker at the 15th annual, “Possibilities: Siskin Hospital Celebrates Life Beyond Disability,” luncheon on Tuesday, Feb. 27. The event will be held 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Chattanooga Convention Center.

The Possibilities luncheon will also feature a video that highlights a Siskin Hospital patient who has overcome disability.

Will Reeve, Christopher Reeve’s son, will share his experience of living with a family member’s disability.

“You’ll be inspired by Will’s memories of his ‘Superman’ father and his mother, Dana, a working mom, wife and primary caregiver,” says Donna Deweese, special events and contributions coordinator at Siskin Hospital. “Will’s heritage of joy and hope from these two amazing people, who he says gave him a ‘normal’ childhood, drives him to continue their legacy through the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.”

A dedicated steering committee led by Dr. and Mrs. John Boxell is working with Siskin Hospital staff to coordinate the luncheon.

The Possibilities luncheon is Siskin Hospital’s only community-wide fundraising event. The proceeds provide needed services for patients without adequate insurance to cover the cost of their care.

Individual tickets are $75. Platinum sponsorship tables of eight are available for $3,000, Crystal sponsorship tables of eight are available for $2,000 and Patron sponsorship tables of eight are available for $1,500.
