About this event

It's that time of year again! Our annual Koinonia Foundation Gala is approaching and we cannot wait to share with you all of the incredible changes and growth we've experienced in the last year.

This year, we are thrilled to finally be celebrating The Koinonia Foundation's 20 year anniversary! On October 28th we will gather at Bridgewater Place for an evening of fun, fellowship, fundraising, food and cocktails! We are honored to have Coach Bruce Pearl give our keynote address this year. Coach Pearl has been a friend of The Koinonia Foundation for over a decade and will share his personal experience with our programs. We will also have entertainment provided by Knoxville's own Chelsea Berry!

The Koinonia Foundation serves individuals with disabilities through unique, needs-based programs that enrich their lives and provide the opportunity for life-long learning.

The Koinonia Foundation serves individuals with disabilities with the following programs:

  • Camp Koinonia - Overnight camp in the Spring for kids ages 7-21.
  • Koinonia Retreat - Overnight camp in the Fall for adults ages 22 and up.
  • Camp Isagoge - Day camp in the Fall for kids ages 5-11.
  • We Adapt - Monthly community engagement events for adults 18 and up .
  • Koinonia Classroom - Program for Special Education classrooms that provides video content of adapted activities and supplies kits for all the activities.

Over the course of the last year, we have seen incredible growth in our We Adapt programs and Koinonia Classroom and we welcomed back our campers at both Camp Koinonia and Koinonia Retreat. We are also excited to introduce our newest program, Camp Isagoge. This is a one-day, day camp, program that will serve kids with disabilities ages 5 to 11.

We hope you will join us on October 28th to celebrate our 20th year of providing meaningful opportunities for kids and adults with disabilities in our community!

We hope you will take this opportunity into consideration. If you have any questions, please reach out to Jacqui pearl at jpearl@kftn.org, call (865)-888-7365 or visit www.kftn.org.
