Our Mission

2019 Hope Gala Honorees

Each year, one of the many roles of the Hope Gala Chairs, is to select a group of honorees to recognize at the annual event. It serves as the most carefully considered decision associated with the event.

An honoree is a distinguished individual in the Greater Knoxville area. From survivors to family caregivers, doctors and medical researches, it is an opportunity for the American Cancer Society to highlight special faces in our cancer community.

This year, Brian & Shelby Quinley are proud to recognize, Janet Testerman, Keith Phillips, McKenzie Loy, Emily Lamon Justice & Sam McCamy. To learn more about these wonderful individuals, please scroll ahead.


We are always accepting recommendations for future gala honorees. Please contact Stacey.clark@cancer.org for nominations.
