A Night to Remember benefits a dozen urban organizations in the community.

Proceeds allow children in these programs to get after school tutoring, attend summer camps, and provide transportation for children in need.

Last year A Night to Remember raised about $60,000 to help local organizations.

Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy received some of the donations from the event and school leaders say every dollar raised makes a positive impact.

"To receive funds like this is important for us to be able to do some extra things and build those supports around our students who are behind academically so that they won't struggle so much."

A Night to Remember has been bringing  entertainment to the scenic city for the past 26 years.  This year the legendary Kool and the Gang along with r&b artist Monica are the headliners.
