For 80 years Greer Relief has been providing safety net services for those in need in the Greater Greer area. On Saturday, March 19th, over 140 guests gathered at the beautiful City of Greer Cannon Centre Speakeasy, decorated by Upstate Event Rentals, for a snappy good time, for a great cause! The annual Gala, raised over $24,000 to support the mission of Greer Relief. Guests enjoyed dinner, catered by Ace Restaurant, the chocolate fondue by The Melting Pot, swing music by DJ Dustin, swing dancers, drinks presented by Paychex, and the always fabulous silent auction. The Greer Event Rentals photo booth snapped photos all night, and guests took home high spirits from Sugar Tit Moonshine. Caroline T. Robertson, Executive Director of Greer Relief, is looking forward to the night, “We are excited to celebrate such a milestone!” Greer Relief partnered again with TweetBeam to create a Twitter wall during and after the Gala. Sincerest thanks to the 2016 Gala committee, sponsors, auction donors and guests for truly making a difference, #hereingreer.
Funds raised through the annual Gala “80th Birthday Prohibition Party” and other events help achieve the mission to prevent hunger and homelessness in the Greater Greer area.
