2015 Champions for Children Gala

Six honorees were celebrated at the Third Annual Champions for Children Gala, held Thursday, April 23 at the Grand Marquise Ballroom in Garner. 

“From the pulpit to the race track to the courtroom, the 2015 Champions for Children have stood strong for children,” said John Wilson, Chair of the Champions for Children Campaign. “From the halls of the legislature and through telecommunications, our honorees have given voice to child advocacy. These six North Carolinians have dedicated their professional lives in service to children and their families, and we are thrilled to shine a light on their contributions.”
