Comments from last year's gala:
"This was my first time volunteering for Charlotte's Taste of Hope fundraising gala and I absolutely had a fabulous time! I met some really great people, the food was fantastic, and all for a wonderful cause (to reduce health disparities). I plan to attend again this year for sure!
Beverly Thorpe, donor and volunteer
"What an evening! I anticipated the dining experience would be top notch, but the chefs' presentation exceeded my expectations. We could cut the steak with a butterknife. Our guests and donors received a top-tier fundraising experience that certainly made an impact to our area."
