Regional Executive Corner with Joel R. Sullivan - May 2017

Greetings Nashville Area Chapter!

Our 2017 HCA/Tristar Health Lifesaver Breakfast was a huge success!  Thank you to all the volunteers, staff, Board and committee members who made this success possible.  As you know, the Lifesaver Breakfast is our ONLY fundraising event for the Nashville Area Chapter each year.  Your time and commitment to the American Red Cross and the clients we serve allowed us to present yet another successful breakfast.

This year was especially significant in that our Chapter celebrated 100 years of service at the event.  Our Centennial was commemorated by a special Centennial video and moving performance by the Mt. Zion Baptist Church choir.  Our keynote speaker, Mark Lazarus, was a big hit, talking about his experiences over the years in working with NBC Broadcasting and Sports.  And, our Tennessee Region Tiffany Circle was recognized for their 10 year anniversary and special contributions to the Red Cross.

Through the generous donations of our attendees and sponsors, the Lifesaver Breakfast raised $857,655!  The money raised will allow us to continue to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters big and small in the Nashville area.

Thank you to our 2017 Lifesaver Breakfast sponsors. View a full list of our sponsors at

Our Nashville Area Chapter has an amazing team!  Together, we ensure the community is prepared and ready to respond to disaster at a moment’s notice.

Thank You!
