Best Buddies Gala in Charlotte

October 1, 2016 Charlotte, North Carolina

On October 1st, Marty & Cindy Sumichrast hosted the first annual North Carolina Best Buddies International Gala in Charlotte. Sponsors included Kure Vaporium, Diamonds Direct, Level Beauty Group, Kathy Ireland Worldwide, Barings and Mercedes-Benz of South Charlotte.

The gala raised $334,000, more than $80,000 above the fundraiser goal of $250,000. Funds raised at the gala will go towards efforts to open a local Best Buddies office in North Carolina in order to continue supporting and expanding Best Buddies International programs in the state.

After a lively cocktail hour with performers on stilts and tumblers in clear bubbles floating on water, guests enjoyed drinks, dinner and dessert complete with a ballroom dancing performance by Ballroom V. After the live auction, guests took to the dance floor and shook it up with a live 12-piece band.

Guests were inspired by a number of speeches, including one by Katie Meade, Best Buddies International Ambassador and face of Fearless Hair Rescue Treatment, and words from Anthony Kennedy Shriver.

Beauty & Pin-Ups’ team attended and got to hang out with Katie, even getting up on stage to sing and dance with the band.

Attendees also received swag bags which included a Fearless Hair Rescue Treatment. A portion of sales from every Beauty & Pin-Ups product goes to Best Buddies International. Every day of the year.

If you would like to make a donation to support Best Buddies North Carolina, please call Megan Zimroth at Best Buddies Headquarters 305-374-2233 ext. 220.
