ONE Night Closer to a Futuristic O.R.

ONE Night Still Reigns as the Hottest Ticket in Town!

For the 7th straight year, the soul of Memphis proudly shone through at ONE Night. More than 900 guests demonstrated why Memphis continues to receive accolades as one of the most charitable cities in the nation.

During the live pledge event at ONE Night 2017, our generous guests donated an additional $141,000 – right on the spot. These funds are dedicated to re-imagining how our operating rooms serve patients, families and the doctors, nurses and staff who save lives.

A commonality in many of our patient stories is their need for the operating room and how integral the O.R. was to saving their lives. It’s time we pushed the boundaries of healthcare innovation in the way our O.R.’s are designed.

Imagine a space equipped with the technology to allow a doctor to communicate directly with an anxious family, use voice activation to adjust the intensity of the lights and vividly display all X-rays and information used to make a diagnosis. These advanced features are now closer to our patients’ reality because of the generosity of our ONE Night live pledge donors.

From the sympathetic tears shed during moving patient stories, the night gave way to a packed dance floor and an unparalleled musical performance by Cameo, followed by The Isley Brothers featuring Ronald and Ernest Isley. We are deeply grateful for the co-chairs, sponsors, volunteers, guests and media who made ONE Night 2017 the hottest ticket in town.
