Runway Cafe at Downtown Airport
A fun evening of food, music, and dancing for mothers and sons to enjoy with their friends. Silent auction and raffles for various items. For boys 5 to 12 years.
Sold out in 4 days. Over $10,000 raised benefiting The Family Effect's Serenity Place. Serenity Place is a residential treatment center for pregnant women, young mothers and their preschool-age children. Each year, about 120 mothers and children find hope, healing and transformation in the program, with each family living on-site for about six months. Up to 48 women and children are in treatment at Serenity Place at any given time. The money raised was used to install a therapeutic playground for the children housed at the center.
The GCMSA wishes to express their gratitude to the Greenville County Medical Society, Doctor’s Care, Foster Victor Health Advisors, Pelham Links Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, and Mr. & Mrs. Brent McKinney, as well as many other in-kind donors for their generosity in helping to make this event happen.
The GCMSA was honored to accept the prestigious 2019 American Medical Association Alliance (AMAA) Health Awareness Promotion (HAP) Award for a Fundraising Program at the AMAA Annual Meeting in Chicago on behalf of their work with this project.
