We Have So Much to Be Grateful For
We've felt the unimaginable impact that COVID-19 has had on our community. Thanks to your donations, sponsorships and volunteerism, our team has been providing supplies, shelter, resources and refuge to help those in need. Now, more than ever, we want to celebrate our community and thank you for your continued support. Therefore, we fully intend to be back to celebrate our 12th anniversary of A Night of Southern Elegance on November 7th, 2020. The gala may look and feel different, but our commitment remains unchanged - to empower those in need with solutions to end homelessness, break the cycle of domestic violence, and create stability and self-sufficiency from crisis.
SAVE THE DATE
A Night of Southern Elegance, the foremost gala in Fayette County and one of the most prominent in the Mid‑South, is an elegant evening of fine wine and dining, an extraordinary auction, and lively dancing directly supporting Fayette Cares.
Fayette Cares fights domestic violence, homelessness and financial crisis in the Mid‑South through many programs including dating violence classes, emergency shelter programs, collaborations with law enforcement, life skills, financial counseling and more.
Typically a sold‑out of 500 guests from Fayette, Shelby and surrounding counties attend, with hundreds more supporting the event through auction donations and volunteerism.
