The South Charlotte Chapter of Jack and Jill of America hosted its new signature fundraiser, Harlem Nights, on New Year’s Eve. Guests were transported back to the 1920s at the themed event held at the Levine Museum of the New South. It featured a silent auction, music from DJ Shogun, heavy hors d’oeuvres from Mert’s Heart and Soul, and a chance for guests to view the museum’s art and history exhibits.

Members of Jack and Jill are committed to investing in programs and services that create a strong foundation for African American children to succeed in life. Funds from Harlem Nights will be distributed to three charities through the Jack and Jill of America Inc.’s Foundation: Renaissance West Community Initiative; The Relatives; and Above and Beyond.
