Up to 400 guests in cocktail attire are expected to gather for a gourmet dinner from Simply Elegant, fine wine, and a special performance by singer, songwriter, and 2009 Soul Train Award winner Maysa.
Live dance music will be performed by the band, Soul Centered.
There’ll also be an interactive art activity, and, live and silent auctions featuring artwork created by the at-risk children and youth living at The Children’s Home, along with other great items.
This year’s event theme is “FACES of Change, Innovation & Talents.”
Residents in The Children’s Home’s care respond positively to art as an innovative approach to rebuilding their lives. FACES will showcase their courage for positive change, along with their innate artistic talent.
