A Dec. 9 benefit dinner for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Carolina raised more than $7,000 for the organization.
The five course dinner presented at Cooper’s Restaurant and Wine Room by the restaurant and Camelback Brewing Company raised a total of $7,415 in donations and pledges, according to Elizabeth Colebrook, the resource development and marketing coordinator for the Boys and Girls Club.
“Our clubs depend on the generosity of our supporters, partners, and investors. Support from individuals and the local business community is vital to our ability to ensure that all young people have the same opportunities to succeed as their more affluent peers,” she said. “We are incredibly appreciative to have the opportunity to partner with Cooper’s Restaurant & Wine Room and Camelback Brewing Company, and truly honored by the strong commitment of the individuals and businesses that have supported this event through their donations. These gifts are not just donations; they are an investment in the lives of the young people who need us most and the future of our community.”
