The end of summer is upon us, which is exciting for many reasons. The holidays quickly approach, parents get to send their kids back off to school, here at the TFFT office–and in many other places around the country–we say goodbye to the smoldering summer heat. But the most exciting thing about the end of summer is preparation for the Annual South of the Sahara Gala, held each fall!
We are in full planning mode in our Charlotte office, as we meet with our caterer, secure silent and live auction items, print invitations, and prepare to surprise our guests with a few tricks up our sleeves.
This year’s gala theme is The Power of Influence. Everything we do we are able to do because of your incredible impact and influence on your communities. Our South of the Sahara Gala, which brings roughly 225 influential individuals from Charlotte, New York, Chicago, Seattle, and beyond in support of The Foundation For Tomorrow, is our biggest event of the year and a cornerstone of our fundraising initiatives. Over the past twelve years, this event has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help improve the quality of education for orphan and vulnerable children.
This November, we will celebrate another year of TFFT’s growth and success! We invite you to participate. Click here to purchase your ticket! Can’t make it this year? There are other ways to get involved. Donate to our silent or live auction, become a corporate sponsor, or advertise in our patron book! Shoot us an email if you’d like more information!
