Charlottesville Promise Gala 2013
The Paramount Theater, Downtown Mall, Charlottesville, VA
Come to the Promise Gala 2013, a fun and memorable evening of food, music, dancing and celebration to support Charlottesville's student scholars and raise funds for the Charlottesville Scholarship Program (CSP). Founded by City Council in 2001 and matched by contributions from the community, CSP has supported graduates of Charlottesville Public Schools as well as city employees in their pursuit of higher education since 2004. Today, thirty low- and moderate-income students receive the good-through-graduation scholarships ─ double the number from previous years, thanks to funds raised by the annual Promise Gala. The Gala has heavy hors d'oeuvres and dessert from Charlottesville's best restaurants, musical entertainment and dancing to 180, Central Virginia's favorite band. Emceed by the Chamber's own Andrea Copeland, and featuring guest speaker, noted author and educator Dr. Rosalyn Berne. For more information, go to www. cvillescholarship.com or call 434-987-8338.
