It was fabulous to see so many friends on May 4 as we celebrated the 2021 Lifetime of Love recipients Jenny and Randy Boyd for their outstanding support of Sertoma. The dinner was canceled in 2020 because of Covid. This year we socially distanced at The Tennessee Amphitheater, World’s Fair Park.


Jimmy Hyams chatted with Phillip Fulmer about his life as an athlete, coach and UT’s athletics director. Food City was an event sponsor and also provided flowers.

From the invitation: “Everyone deserves a chance to live a life full of purpose and promise. A life that values work, relationships and the dignity of a home to be proud of. We provide the opportunity for adults with intellectual disabilities to find satisfaction of a life well lived, through work and friendship.

“Through no fault of their own, these adults need the support of their community, so we create a home for rest and comfort. We help fulfill the human desire to live a life of purpose and promise.”

Juvenile Diabetes: Food City ended its fundraiser to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation on May 4. This annual promotion raises money from customers and vendors. “Flash Black” posted on social media: “Food City is an amazing store that gives back to the community. As a parent of a child with diabetes, I will always be a raving fan of Food City.”
