“We want to welcome everyone who lives or works in the midtown or Chattanooga area,” says Victoria Overholser, Executive Director of Grassroots midTown. “I think people should come to support growing and moving forward their own community…it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
This Thursday, Grassroots midTown will hold their first “Take a Gamble on midTown” fundraiser at the Wilson Air Center, sponsored by The Chattanooga Airport. It is a casino-themed event with a silent auction, games, and prizes, which range from an educational course at TechTown to airline tickets for a trip for two.
Grassroots midTown was founded this past summer, and since then, they have strived to facilitate the growth and cohesion of the Brainerd area community in regards to retail, recreation, dining, and culture. They are working with businesses in the community to continue completing those goals, Overholser explains. “Geographically we’re right in the middle of the city, and we want everyone to take another look.”
If you love cocktails and games (and supporting the midtown area), you’ll definitely want to come. Tickets are $25, which includes food and chips to kick off your night of fun. The festivities begin at 5:30 p.m at the Wilson Air Center off of Jubilee Drive.
It’s your chance to help Brainerd thrive, and have fun doing it.
