A Mother’s Keeper would like to say THANK YOU to every sponsor, every donor, every attendee and every volunteer who helped make our first annual charity ball a huge success! Last night’s Date Night In December charity event raised over $5,000 to help us reach our Christmas giving goal of 250 care packages to be delivered this December.
Fundraising was not the only gauge of last night’s success – the three honored guests, local hospital moms who this year spent countless hours fighting bedside for their children, got to enjoy the evening. Each one received a special gift compliments of Kendra Scott, a corsage from I Do Weddings With Love and a copy of “A Different Dream For My Child”. They enjoyed fellowship with each other and found community in shared struggles.
Attendees gathered with friends and made new ones on the dance floor, outbid each other at the silent auction and struck a pose at the step and repeat. It truly was a date night to remember and the effects will go far in reaching central Virginia hospital moms this Christmas season.
In case you missed it, our second annual Date Night charity ball will be held November 30, 2018 at Bandit’s Ridge.
