Southern Soirée

Please join us!

Plan to attend the Southern Soirée on Friday, April 5 from 7:00 - 10:00 PM on the lawn of Christ Church. Proceeds from this annual event will benefit the programs for all of the children of Christ Church as well as one of our partner agencies, the Charlotte Bilingual Preschool.

Your $65 per adult registration covers a fabulous evening of food and fun on the lawn at Christ Church, with Southern fare, sodas, wine and beer, water, music, silent auction, raffle prizes and more. Dressy-casual attire is recommended. This annual event will be held rain or shine (inside location, in the event of rain). We hope to see you there! 
 
This year, the majority of the proceeds from the event will be used to make playground upgrades. This is where the children of Christ Church, CCK and the neighborhood community laugh, grow and play every day. The areas will be updated in three phases over the next few years so our growing community of young families can continue to play for years to come. Phase One to begin this summer ($60,000 goal), will provide a new, fully renovated playground for our younger children. A portion of the funds will also benefit the youngest children of Christ Church through our Nursery Committee.

Proceeds will also be shared with Charlotte Bilingual Preschool, which prepares Spanish-speaking children for success in school and life by providing superior dual-language early childhood education. The preschool supports students’ families with parenting, life skills and English-language classes, enabling them to sustain and nurture their children’s educational and emotional development.

We are excited to support these endeavors and hope you will be too!
