Ada Jenkins event brings in $16K for non-profit

Oct. 12. The Ada Jenkins Center’s Music for Good fundraiser Oct. 5 brought in more than $16,000.

“We truly appreciate everyone who made the music happen,” says Ada Jenkins Center CEO Harold Rice. “They had a great time, met friends old and new, danced throughout the evening—and most importantly, helped support vulnerable Lake Norman neighbors who still are recovering within the COVID economy.”

The event at Boatyard Lake Norman featured the bands Southside Station and Mo’ Money, as well as comedian Andy Forrester.

The Ada Jenkins Center has been a hub for education and community services in northern Mecklenburg County for 80 years. With services including social work case management; housing, employment and financial coaching; youth and adult education; and food pantry, we help thousands of people in our community create lasting solutions for economic stability.
