2023 Gala Co - Chairs & Gala Committee
SCOTT & RHEA GREENE
This year’s Co chairs Scott and Rhea Greene are newcomers to Chattanooga and excited to now call Chattanooga, TN their home. Home is their key word as both have ties to this area and the state
of TN. Rhea has been employed in Chattanooga by the locally owned business Alice Blue Boutique over the past 5 years and since inception. Scott was born and raised in Memphis, TN, started his transportation and logistics career with FedEx in 1993 and presently working on earning his MBA from the University of
Tennessee’s Haslam College of Business.
Additionally, Scott and Rhea’s youngest son Robert Seth Greene is in the ROTC program and a Sophomore at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga. On a side note, they also own a Beagle named “Dewey” that you might mistake for the Vols Mascot “Smokey”.
Scott is excited to share his own personal story of why being chair
of this event is so important to him and his family. "Nine years ago, my mother was diagnosed with Lung Cancer and at the same time, my Aunt (my Mom's youngest sister) was battling cancer as well. Unfortunately, both lost their battle with cancer 2 months apart in 2016. Really tough time for our whole family.
After my mom’s news about her stage 4 diagnosis, my wife Rhea quickly volunteered to be her caregiver. Subsequently, we made the necessary arrangements and moved her into our home with our 3 kids and two dogs for the remaining one year of her life.
Her courage and positive attitude inspired our whole family and community. Rhea and I wanted to give back, create more awareness around cancer prevention, and raise money to help those in our community and around the world in their fight!!!
We are super excited about “Unmasking the Future. Every Cancer. Every Life” theme and the beautiful chandelier ballroom at Chattanooga’s historic Read House is the perfect location for the event. The night will be incredible, mysterious and we will also recognize a few local VIP honorees as well."
