Harrah's Hope Lodge now under-construction in Memphis Medical Center

Construction of free, temporary housing facility for cancer patients who are undergoing treatment. Funded by Harrah's Entertaiment & The American Cancer Society - $8,000,000.00

Also, notice in this rendering that the property sits directly east of world-famous Sun Studio @ the intersection of Union Ave. & Marshall. Sun was the independent record label & in-house studio that launched the careers of Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Charlie Feathers, Ray Harris, Warren Smith, Charlie Rich, and Jerry Lee Lewis, to name a few. Blues and R&B artists like Howlin' Wolf, Junior Parker, Little Milton, B.B. King, James Cotton, Rufus Thomas, and Rosco Gordon recorded there in the early 1950s as well.
