Darius Rucker

From "Wagon Wheel" to "Homegrown Honey", Darius' unique blend of country, pop and rock hits have been entertaining audiences for over a decade, since Hootie & the Blowfish first took the scene.  If you haven't seen Darius perform before, this intimate evening will surely be one to remember.

 


 You Made a Ripple

Our 2014 Gala was a huge success thanks to our generous guests we continued the ripple of giving and raised over $630,000 for our two charities, The Healing Center and Inspire Youth Project, which will allow them to continue their vital work in our community.  Event guests included over 500 local business leaders, celebrities, athletes and philanthropists!  We hope you enjoyed your opportunity to bid on hundreds of one-of-a-kind auction items, sip and taste wonderful cuisine and libations courtesy of SKYY, Waterbrook and Meydenbauer Center, be entertained by our Auctioneer John Curley, and dance the night away with The Rhythm Nation band.
