CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - The community will gather for a big pep rally Thursday night to celebrate the Big Hearts extreme home makeover project. The ABC show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will be in the Chattanooga area to begin a new house on February 14.
Thursday's event officially begins at 6:30 p.m. at The Chattanoogan Hotel. As guests arrive, the Funkabuckets percussion band will play in the lobby and UTC cheerleaders will greet visitors.
At 6:30 p.m., UTC cheerleaders and UTC band members will lead a parade of speakers into the ballroom and get the crowd excited. Remember, this is being called a pep rally!
Alison Lebovitz will be the evening's emcee. She will introduce the speakers, including the show's producer and Mayor Ron Littlefield.
Our partners from US-101 will be on hand to introduce the Mountain Cove Bluegrass Band. The band will perform a couple songs.
After some music, volunteers will receive instructions and additional information.
Channel 3 Eyewitness News will have a crew at the pep rally and will stream it live on WRCBtv.com. Click here for our official Big Hearts page complete with video and the latest information.
