The Fair Chance team definitely out did themselves this year for their annual Butterfly Bash gala at the National Cathedral. The illuminating butterfly lights brought a charismatic twist to the overall decor and the band got everyone on the dancefloor for an amazing night. This philanthropic affair honored local leaders that strive to improve the lives of youth living in poverty everyday. Over 700 guests and 50 sponsors came together to recognize Carlos M. Gutierrez, former US Secretary of Commerce, for his commitment to help underprivileged youth through his work for TheDream.us scholarship fund. Guests went above and beyond with their charitable contributions during the 5 minute “Bash Cash” text pledge fundraising competition, helping raise about $120,000 for the nonprofit and exceeding expectations. Can't wait to see what next year brings!
