Black and White Gala: A Night of Southern Elegance benefitting Fayette Cares
Sat., November 4, 6:30 pm-11:30 pm
A Night of Southern Elegance — the foremost gala in Fayette County and one of the most prominent in the Mid-South — is an elegant evening of fine wine and dining, an extraordinary auction and lively dancing directly supporting Fayette Cares.
Typically, a sold-out crowd of 450 guests from Fayette, Shelby and surrounding counties attend, with hundreds more supporting the event through auction donations and volunteerism. This year’s Black and White themed gala, begins with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction featuring a wide array of auction items from businesses throughout the Mid-South and beyond. Event guests enjoy a splendid dinner followed by a live auction featuring exceptional items and unique experiences. The evening concludes with the crowd dancing to a live band late into the night.
Fayette Cares fights domestic violence, homelessness and financial crisis in the Mid-South through many programs, including dating violence classes, emergency shelter programs, collaborations with law enforcement, life skills, financial counseling and more.
