The Friends of Epworth are proud to announce the 5th Annual Friends of Epworth Gala to benefit Epworth Children’s Homes on Friday, March 17, 2017 at the new My Carolina Alumni Center in Columbia.  As the signature event for the Friends of Epworth, the event raises awareness and funds for Epworth and the children who call Epworth home.

Most children in our community have all they need and more. This makes it possible for them to dream big, knowing that someone along the way will help them reach their goals…but not all children are so lucky.  The children at Epworth come from environments where poverty, neglect and abuse derail childhoods.  Instead of dreaming of bright futures, these children faced daily nightmares.  Thankfully, their lives—and dreams—transform by the love, security and care given to them at Epworth.

The buzz around Columbia is that the Friends of Epworth gala is earning the reputation as the “Best Party in Columbia.”   We expect 2017 to be the biggest and liveliest gala yet!  Attendees come ready for an up-scale good time.  The black-tie optional event includes live music, a large dance floor, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and an open bar for all guests.

Join us for a night of fun as we celebrate the promise of bright futures for children at Epworth.

Tickets are $150 for couples or $100 for individuals. Purchase your ticket today.
