Our clients throw the best parties, and sometimes we get invited!

The first weekend in November, a group of DSers took a short road trip from Knoxville to neighboring Lenoir City in Roane County to celebrate and support the Roane Alliance at their annual Gala. We’ve been a proud partner of the Alliance for over a year now, collaborating to create print and digital collateral, a marketing plan and a website for each alliance partner.

We enjoyed an evening of wine, ice cream, fine dining, dancing and photo booths at the Volkswagen Distribution Center in one of Roane County’s business parks—we’re particularly proud of our mad dash through the photo booth.

We also enjoyed the live and silent auctions with Bear Stephenson, where several DSers got a head start on their Christmas shopping (for themselves or others, you ask? We’ll never know). Among the many items on the list were jewelry, a shih tzu puppy, a settlers hat from the Republican National Convention and many other surprising finds for Roane peeps. The Roane Alliance also honored David Webb, owner of Rocky Top Market, into their Hall of Fame. 

The highlight of the evening, for our team, was the debut of the economic development video produced as a part of the collaboration between our team and our friends at PopFizz.

We capped off the evening with DJ Sterl the Pearl, who raced over after the Vols’ win.

Congratulations to our friends at the Roane Alliance for another successful event. See you next year!
