The Eden Calhoun Charitable Fund Gala will be a night to remember! Come get dressed up, eat a delicious dinner, take a look at our amazing silent auction pieces, participate in a 50/50 drawing if desired, hear speeches from Eden's surgeons all the way from Houston, and enjoy a delightful afternoon out supporting a wonderful cause. We have Pell City's very own Jared Brasher as the Gala's entertainment!

Doors will open at 6:30 where appetizers will be available as you walk in, as you can mingle and nibble to start the night. A wine bar will be available, as well. Walk around the silent auction room and take a look at our wonderful items who have been donated by so many generous people! If you want to take a chance at a 50/50 drawing, you can buy tickets for that. All winners will be announced at the end of the event. New ECCF Merchandise will be available for purchase as well!

Dinner will be catered and served to the guests' tables by Butts to Go around 7:00-7:15. Guests have the option of choosing a 9 oz Sliced Brisket with mashed potatoes and roasted brussel sprouts, or a Smoked Bone-In Chicken Breast with green beans and a sweet potato. An option of Banana Pudding or Chocolate Lava Cake will be served for dessert as well. 

We are SO excited to also announce that two of Eden's surgeons from Houston, TX will be flying to attend and speak at the event!
