Dinner of Firsts 2014 Scheduled

Please save the date and make plans to attend Chattanooga State Foundation’s Dinner of Firsts 2014 to be held on Thursday evening, October 16, 2014. The Dinner of Firsts is our signature fundraising event with a toast and a roast honoring a community leader who is the first in their family to attend college. This third annual dinner event will honor Chattanooga’s one and only Leonard Fant with Grady Williams serving as event chair. Our Dinner of Firsts will once again be held at The Chattanoogan, and we look forward to another sold-out event.

Proceeds of the event will fund the Chattanooga State Foundation’s First-in-the-Family Scholarship program for first-generation college students attending ChattState full-time. This year, more than 5,000 of our 11,537 students were the first in their families to attend college.
