2013 Champions for Children Gala A Great Success!
The First Annual Champions for Children Gala Fundraiser was held on April 25 at the Grand Marquise Ballroom in Garner. Our Gala’s five honorees were The Honorable James B. Hunt, Jr., Golden Corral, The National Inclusion Project, Rev. Dr. John Mendez, and Mr. Julius Chambers, Esquire. To view photos of the event, click here.
NCFPSC board members, along with staff from the NC Association of Educators, literally saved the day for needy children who were depending on Raleigh’s Hands on Mission to provide them with a free backpack filled with school supplies. When nearly 65 backpacks were stolen from the mission, children who were impacted had to attend school for three days with their school supplies in plastic bags, paper bags, or nothing at all. Thankfully, one of NCFPSC’s board members saw an opportunity for the Foundation to serve out its purpose in helping some of North Carolina’s public school children by replacing the stolen backpacks and school supplies!
