Regional One Health held its annual fundraising gala at the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday night (April 5th) to raise money and awareness for the former Regional Medical Center at Memphis (the MED).
The premiere event, dubbed "MED Night: A Soul Celebration," benefits The MED Foundation and featured, as always, an all-star cast of soulful musicians and entertainers who'd topped the charts in their heyday and remain today as influential as they were during the days of vinyl records.
The sold-out event attracted a gala audience of men and women who listened intently and moved their bodies to the melodious music of the New Ballet Ensemble and the captivating performances by Shirley Alton Reeves, once the lead singer of The Shirelles, Dennis Edwards and The Temptations Revue, and Kool & The Gang.
