Febb Burn Banquet and Fundraiser

Febb Burn Banquet and Fundraiser Postponed Again.

Once more the wretched virus has forced us to postpone the fabulous events we had planned for the Febb Burn Banquet and Fundraiser from November 11, 2021 to Thursday, March 3, 2022.  It will be at the same time and location (Crowne Plaza) and we expect that the banquet and related activities will be live and in person (maybe also with a virtual option).  At least it is a great way to usher in Women’s History Month!

If you already have reservations you don’t have to do anything, we will just roll them over to March 3, 2022.  We will be updating the website as details are confirmed.  If you haven’t registered for the event, now would be a great time to do so!  Sponsorships are still available as well.

As you know, our Centennial parade also had to be postponed.  We should be able to announce the reset date very soon.  This gives you more time to locate and design decorations for the golf cart delegation.  You can still order flags and organize delegations.  Check the details on the website which will be updated as we are able to confirm details.

Of course, it is too early to know whether Covid 19 protocols will need to be in place, but we will update the website as soon as we know.

We will have these events.  As Susan B. Anthony said: “Failure is Impossible!”

The Burn Memorial Unveiling

The Suffrage Coalition raised more than $500,000 to build what is now one of the state’s most prized landmarks – The Burn Memorial.  Located just steps from the Tennessee Woman Suffrage Memorial on Gay Street in downtown Knoxville, it honors the legacy of Representative Harry T. Burn and his mother, Febb whose letter to her son changed the course of American politics.
