The night was full of heart felt sentiment as the hosts explained why the three charities were so personal to them. Followed by representatives of each charity, who spoke with such passion and moved everyone in the audience.
The color scheme was vibrate and represented the colors of the three charities. We used melon linens for the cocktail tables and teal blue for the seating tables. Pop of orange, coral, green, pink, and purple provided a great contrast to the table linens.
Since several of the hosts were involved in their charities in memory of a loved ones, I was especially honored and touched to be a part of this event.
Additionally, it was our relationship through the Junior League of Charlotte, which has a rich history of service, that brought us together. All four hosts, the founder of Lydia’s Legacy, Carin Ross Johnson, and myself are all members of the Junior League of Charlotte.
Besides the shrimp and grits and the Moscow Mule, the other fun element was the black tie formal attire requested dress code. Watching people walk in and dance in formal dresses added a festive atmosphere to the night!
Everyone that attended the event went away knowing a little more about these three well established charities in Charlotte and not wanting the night to end after getting down on the dance floor.
