A Night to Celebrate Community

March 21, 2024 at 6:00 PM

An annual fundraiser for South Carolina's children

Join us for our third annual Night to Celebrate Community as we celebrate 25 years of helping children ages 0-5 be prepared for school and life! Join us Thursday, March 21 from 6-10 p.m. as we raise funds for the work our local partnerships do across South Carolina. This will be an uplifting evening of and fun with live music by Emerald Empire and dancing at the Hall at Senate’s End in Columbia. All proceeds will go to early education and health programs for children ages 0-5 in every county across the state.

With funds raised from last year, even more young children and their families across our state had access to in home visitation and group support from a trained parent educator through Parents as Teachers program in 27 counties, a total of 960 families statewide, and 473 children had access to weekend backpacks to provide healthy food in some of our most rural communities.
