Important Dates

Peninsula Foundation ‘Emerald’ gala is Nov. 19

Oct. 24. The Peninsula Community Foundation will hold a gala Saturday Nov. 19 at The Peninsula Club after a two-year COVID hiatus. The foundation, which has raised more than $2 million dollars since its founding in 2001, focuses on local nonprofits which often fall below the United Way threshold and therefore have a harder time obtaining funding.

Green theme

Gala attendees are encouraged to “wear green or bring green” to honor 20 years during which the PCF has served Cornelius, Davidson and Huntersville.
