On October 3, over 300 of Charlotte’s movers and shakers donned their black ties and elegant gowns to raise money for International House. Guests celebrated the sights, sounds and tastes of Morocco with a glamorous theme of A Night in Casablanca…”play it, Sam.” Special guests included Honarary Chairs, Alvaro and Donna de Molina; The Honorable Steve Brereton, Canadian Consul General, Atlanta; Mr. Gilberto Bergman, Honorary Consul of Nicaragua, Charlotte; Mrs. Millie Cox, Honorary Consul of France, Charlotte; and Mr. Dana Hicks, Honorary Consul of Canada, Charlotte. The Gala raised over $70,000 for the programs and services of International House.
We extend sincerest gratitude to all who helped make this year's Gala a huge success. Special thanks go to Josane Calvert and Stefanie Staton, Gala Co-Chairs, and their dedicated, hard-working volunteer Gala Committee. Finally, thank you to our corporate sponsors, listed below, for their financial support of the event. All proceeds from the Annual Galas support the programs and services of International House.
