Last evening several residents of First Ward and members of our board attended the fifth annual Take a Slice Out of Cancer fundraiser at Villa Francesca. Each year the event gets bigger and better with a veritable who’s who of Charlotte in attendance. Now, while the event is a party, the emphasis is on defeating cancer. Once again, organizers were able to exceed their fundraising goal.
The First Ward Community Fund made a cash donation and also contributed a autographed Tom Seaver shadowbox for the silent auction.
Villa Francesca is a major part of our neighborhood and they always help us when called upon. And, like any good neighbor, we step up to help them when asked.
