Join Me For A Night Out In NoDa
In our community, the zip code you’re born into can determine your future.
That means two kids growing up at the same time – often just a few blocks from one another – wind up living worlds apart, even if their zip codes differ by just one number.
At the YMCA, we know that a number should never define – or limit – anyone. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to reach their full potential, no matter who you are or where you’re from
As many of you may know, I'm a long-standing member of the volunteer board for our neighborhood YMCA--the historic Johnston Y. Located in the heart of NoDa, the Johnston has served Charlotte's northeast corridor for nearly 70 years, offering its support and programming to the diverse community that surrounds it. I, myself, am a product of the YMCA's sports and leadership programs and owe a great deal to the Y experiences of my youth. Now as a board member, I am helping raise funds to support the Johnston and our underserved neighbors.
These efforts culminate at our annual fundraising event--A Night Out For Johnston--on September 20, 2019. We're bringing it back to the hood this year, with the event kicking off at 6:30 pm at NoDa's own Heist Brewery. The evening will feature live music, complimentary food and beverage, an exciting lineup of live and silent auction items AND, most importantly, the opportunity to impact young lives. And it's absolutely free to attend. Many of you have joined me for this event in the past and can verify the fact that it's a great time. For those who have not, please be my guest for this fun evening and see for yourselves.
If you can't attend the event, please consider making a contribution to this worthy cause. All funds raised by me and my team will help the Y address critical community needs and deliver life-changing programs that inspire young potential, promote academic success, prevent drowning and ensure access and belonging for all. Join my campaign and Team Johnston YMCA today and help make a difference in our community.
Every dollar I raise will go right back to our community, helping sustain programs that can make all the difference – from early learning to college prep, water safety to mentorship, the Y works tirelessly to bring critical services to our neighbors in need.
Give to my campaign today! Together, we can help the Y create opportunity for all.
