The Make Your Mark Gala on Saturday, Oct. 24 at 6:30 pm at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Club is the first annual fundraiser for this Charlotte-based, non-profit which has served at-risk inner city youth of Charlotte since 2008, expanded to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 2012, with a third location planned for the Bronx, NY. Working with vulnerable children and families is the core of Make Your Mark’s (MYM) mission. Faced with horrific challenges like pressure to join gangs, dropping out of school, physical and sexual abuse, hunger, life threatening sicknesses and loneliness, MYM creates safe, loving environments that encourage, train and empower children to overcome these obstacles through mentoring, education and family enrichment. In Ethiopia, they also transition them from living in the streets to placing them in families.
The Gala will provide a professional jazz band, a tasty meal of Chicken Marsala and several powerful presentations by keynote speakers.
