REWIND: 2012 Queen City Hope Benefit

September 2012 marked the first of an annual initiative to partner with Charlotte entities in order to make a difference in the city and bring a message of hope where there is need.

Upwards of 500 people—artists, volunteers, local partners, and viewers—stopped by to witness and to support the effort, as well as to be encouraged by the consistent hopeful theme reinforced during the evening through music and the spoken word.

This was an amazing feat for Queen City Hope’s first gathering, which could not have been possible except for the incredible partnerships formed in this labor of love.

Over 200 people were fed due to the generosity of several restaurants partners: advocate for the homeless, The King’s Kitchen, as well as Mert’s Heart and Soul, Delta’s Restaurant, Anntony’s Caribbean Café and Nana’s Soul Food Kitchen.

Last year’s beneficiary of this effort, The Harvest Center of Charlotte, is a faith based organization dedicated to facilitating transformation in local community members’ lives by helping to meet their basic needs. Queen City Hope sought to bring awareness to The Harvest Center’s existence and their need for a wider and more consistent volunteer base. Please consider volunteering your time and talent or making a monetary donation by visiting www.theharvestcenter.org today!

As we anticipate the next great Queen City Hope effort in August 2013, please partner with us, volunteer, donate or make plans for your group to attend! Find out more at www.queencityhope.org or by contacting Free Nixon at free@queencityhope.org.
