We are expanding hope again with two incredible back-to-back events! Save the dates for our elegant Evening of Hope Gala with Dennis Quaid on Wednesday, September 11, and Igniting Hope with Soul Psychedelique Orchestra band on Thursday, September 12!

Both the Evening of Hope and Igniting Hope are held at the gorgeous Pavilion at the Angus Barn. The Evening of Hope includes an exquisite 4-course meal with exceptional wine pairings, silent and live auctions with fabulous getaways, wine, and exquisite home decor, and keynote speaker Dennis Quaid. Igniting Hope is a fun and festive celebration of Carolina charm with a southern culinary experience, live auction, music, and dancing the night away. Seating at both events will be limited to ensure intimate and incomparable experiences for all our guests.
