This past Saturday night, I attended Regional One Health Foundation’s One Night Gala which turned out to be a very fun filled night with great food, drink, beautful decor and entertainment by the legendary 80s singer Kenny Loggins and Memphis own The Bar-kays.
I was able to attend with my very good friend of 23 years and sorority sister Yvette where I saw some of my favorite people, couples as well as networked and made some new friends. That’s always a plus.
The decor was beautiful, people were dressed to the nines, loved the photobooth where we were texted our pictures in a matter of minutes, and the 3 course meal was delicious. So delicious to the point I forgot to take pics and I’m a food blogger lol. But believe me, the presentation was as beautiful as it tasted.
Kenny Loggins got people cutting loose on the dance floor and Memphis’ own The Bar-kays brought the house down with their choreographed dance moves and old school songs.
One of the highpoints of the evening occurred when Molly Courtney, daughter of local Memphian and Oscar winner Bill Courtney of the movie, “Undefeated,” shared the powerful and moving story of how the doctors and nurses at Regional One Health saved the life of her brother, Max.
Donations began pouring in on the spot after Max’s video testimony and Molly’s appearance on stage. Regional One Health, lead by CEO Reginald Coopwood and world renowned doctors, provide life saving medical treatments, ground breaking research, world class care for severely burned patients and the latest technology through generous donors like you.
