Come support Sertoma Center, browse our auction items and dance the night away.

Sertoma Center of Knoxville is pleased to announce that our 2019 Auction Dinner, Ritas’ & Fajitas will be on Saturday, August 17. Leave your tux, tails and evening gowns at home and don your best Latin casual attire for a night of exotic cuisine and endless fun. Ritas’ and Fajitas will be hosted at the Mill & Mine, 227 W Depot Ave., from 6-9 p.m. Tickets are $150 per person or $1500 for a sponsor table of eight people.

“The event is sure to be a fun night filled with great food, funky sounds and many surprises all in support of individuals with intellectual disabilities in the Knoxville area”, said Lee Freeman, Executive Director of Sertoma Center.

The evening is destined to be a success as Chef Jesse Newmister, owner of Kaizen and Tako Taco, prepares the themed menu and local “yacht rock” band Smooth Sailor entertains the crowd.

Not only will guests enjoy delicious dishes and exciting entertainment, they will also be able to participate in live and silent auctions which will feature getaway packages, behind the scene experiences, work by local artisans and much more.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at or by calling Megan Newpher at (865) 524-5555 ext. 239.

Sertoma’s annual Auction Dinner draws a large group of supporters from across East Tennessee to provide mission critical funding for Sertoma Center’s programs and services. All proceeds from Ritas’ and Fajitas will go towards enhancing our community outreach, job placement and residential programs.
