“An Emerald Occasion”


The 34th annual Catholic Charities dinner, “An Emerald Occasion,”was held on Thursday, March 14, at The Knoxville Hilton. This popular annual event brought together more than 400 of Knoxville’s finest for an evening of fun and fellowship. Proceeds from the event benefitted Catholic Charities of East Tennessee. 

The evening included a cocktail reception, silent auction,  dinner, and dancing to the music of Scruffy City Syncopators, as well as a program focusing on the work of CCETN in our community and a special presentation of the Pope Francis Service Award. This year’s award was presented to Kristin Farley, News Anchor on WATE 6 On Your Side. Kristin is an inspiring individual whose outstanding heart for service inspires all who know her.
