Arts for CARES

For years the art community has supported those facing the challenges of HIV. On Saturday, October 19, 2019, the Chattanooga CARES Foundation will continue this tradition by bringing together some of the area’s finest performing and visual artists all in support of Cempa Community Care! We invite you to join us and experience Arts for CARES: Opulence! in the Silver Ballroom of the Read House. 


Opulence! will feature original works and live entertainment from Ballet Tennessee ( and Stellar’s Jay, as well as JT Rodriguez from NBC’s The Voice. Visual art created by Danny Pleshka will be displayed along with photography from BLAM. Local artist Nic Perego will be creating a piece throughout the event to be auctioned off at the conclusion of the evening. A silent auction will be held throughout the night. Heavy hors-d’oeuvres will be served, wine, beer, and spirits will be offered. Master of Ceremonies is Chattanooga’s fiercest queen, T’yana Montice!

General Admission Tickets for this black-tie optional affair are $50 and VIP Tickets including an open bar are $120.
