Ada Jenkins Gala is April 17

Ada Jenkins CenterMarch 11. The Ada Jenkins Center hosts the “Red Hot Gala” at the Langtree Plantation in Mooresville. This signature event is designed to raise awareness of the Ada Jenkins Center and its many programs  while  providing an opportunity  for the community to come together to raise much needed funds to help meet the needs of our neighbors in the Lake Norman area. This year’s event will include live music and auctions.

Funds raised will ensure that programs such as LEARN Works which currently provides after-school enrichment for 121 area students, the Mobile Community Dental Clinic and the Free Clinic of Our Towns,  will continue to serve those in need. With a broad array of medical, youth education, crisis assistance and economic independence programs in place, the Center has a history of stretching funds to ensure this mix of comprehensive services remains. In 2013-2014, the Center served 4,516 neighbors in need, providing 12,656 different services.

The Ada Jenkins Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping citizens in the communities of Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville and S. Iredell County. Sponsorship opportunities are available for the Gala. More info: Jane Cacchione at 704-896-0471 x100 or email jane.cacchione@adajenkins.org.
