West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation, uniquely combines a cocktail hour, followed by a black-tie dinner. Guests will dine as they are entertained by a series of live, sanctioned Kickboxing/MMA matches where solid fighters will duke it out all in the name of fighting for a cure of Type 1 Diabetes.

Thank You Sponsors!
