Last year’s Carolina Panthers Watch Party, our 3rd Annual Fundraising Event, was a blast! Held on October 16, 2016, we tried something a little different from our previous two Country Galas. We went with a football theme and had a blast at our Carolina Panthers Watch Party! Many thanks to all of our awesome supporters who attended! And thank you also to Boardwalk Billy’s and D9 Brewing Company for helping make the event possible. We hope to see you again in 2017!

Check out the fun from our 2nd Annual Country Gala!

For the second straight year we hosted our Country Gala at Dilworth Grille. The event was held on September 17, 2015. We raised over $4,000 for our cause and shared the experiences of people whose lives have been changed over the past year. The Part Time Blues Band entertained us again, creating the perfect atmosphere for sharing our message with supporters.

One highlight of this year’s event was a video demonstrating the difference we are making in the Charlotte community. For those of you in attendance, we truly appreciate your support. If you didn’t make it this year, be sure to sign up for our e-news so we can alert you when we schedule our 2016 Country Gala!

Check out the fun from our Inaugural Country Gala!

Our first community fundraising event was held on September 4, 2014 at Dilworth Grille. It exceeded our expectations with more than 100 people showing up to partake in the festivities!

The Part-Time Blues Band got the party started off right with some great tunes.

According to Dilworth Grille, we broke the record for the most mac n’ cheese ever eaten at one of their onsite events! The BBQ was pretty tasty as well.

And, more than a dozen people went home with awesome items from our Silent Auction!

Our community fundraising events wouldn’t have been possible without all of our wonderful volunteers, so we give a special thanks to everyone who had a hand in making the events come to life.
