To our Partnership for Children guests and supporters, we invite you to join us when the wild rumpus ensues at our 10th Annual Gala for the Children. Maurice Sendak’s classic, Where the Wild Things Are, will come to life in celebration of the creative and colorful minds of children the world over. Guests at the Gala will experience young Max’s epic imaginative adventures, complete with whimsical features and decorations.

Celebrating its 10th year, this year’s Gala for the Children is sure to be a fun evening of exploration, filled with a charming blend of fantasy and fun.

Led by Gala chairs, Walker & Shannon McCrary, committee chairs include: Sarah Beth Campbell, silent auction; Anne Shaw, Jessica Cashatt and Jennifer Jones, desserts committee; Margie & Paul Trogdon, theme design committee; Christy Murphy, PNC Grow Up Great Committee; Wayne Rowe, sponsorships committee, and Tyler Wilhoit, raffle committee.

The evening will feature a catered dinner from AVS Catering & Banquet Centre, beer from Four Saints Brewing Company, wine from The Wet Whistle Co., an expansive dessert bar, including tasty treats from Frosted Dreams Cakes and More and Archdale Bakery, expertly tied to the theme. A much-anticipated silent auction awaits guests and will be filled with gift cards, travel experiences, autographed sports memorabilia and more. DJ Susan Hunt will keep guests moving on the dance floor. The photo booth—along with and array of themed props—are sure to be a big hit! In addition, the drawing will be held for the Partnership’s top raffle prize—a two-night luxury getaway to Charleston, SC!
