The United Community Action Alliance is sponsoring its 5th Annual Seniors Night Out.

“Senior Night Out” is fast becoming a popular event for seasoned adults.  Starting five years ago it drew modest numbers in a smaller location.  On Saturday, October 21, 2023, the event will be held at the Chattanooga Convention and Trade Center hosting a sellout crowd of over 500.  Perhaps its popularity is due to Stellar Award Winner performers like Gospel great Dottie Peoples and the opportunity to show off a special dress or a sharp suit.  After all, the event does also feature the audience favorite which is the Senior Fashion Show. 

Miss Peoples is a Dayton, Ohio native who began her career touring with gospel pioneer Dorothy Norwood. After a stint in jazz, she relocated to Atlanta in 1979 and returned to her gospel roots. She has been dubbed the “Songbird of the South” for her powerful and soulful vocals.

In addition to Peoples’ performance, dinner, and Senior Fashion Show, the event will feature remarks from various elected officials.

UCAA President Armelia Williams will welcome over five hundred guests to this celebration of seniors with Gloria McClendon serving as Mistress of Ceremony, Miss Tina Stewart will narrate the Senior Fashion Show and Commissioner Greg Beck will oversee the crowning of the oldest participant at the event. It is recommended you get your ticket early next year!
