A Night for the Children Gala

September 15, 2016

The Party: The 13th annual Night for the Children Gala was held at Memminger Auditorium, where guests enjoyed live music from The Midnight City Band, silent and live auctions, and mouth-watering cuisine from Mosaic Catering & Events. The event raised more than $215,000 for the Carolina Youth Development Center’s programs, which provide shelter and support to children victimized by abuse or neglect. 

Highlight: Breanda Levy, CYDC alum and current Johsnon & Wales sophomore, gave an emotional and moving speech about her time with the Center, using herself as an example of how supporting a child has significant impact, though it may not always be immediately recognizable. 

Overheard: ”To see the work these people do, it really encourages me as a community member to go out and give more.”

Beneficiary: Carolina Youth Development Center
