O n August 24, 2018, the ACC Charlotte Chapter held its eighth annual Casino Night Fundraiser at the beautiful Sweet Magnolia Estate in Cornelius, North Carolina. Over 200 chapter members, spouses, sponsors, and guests enjoyed yet another outstanding evening of gambling with "funny money" at the casino tables, as well as enjoying a delicious catered dinner by Delectables by Holly Catering and an open bar.

Great prizes were given out at the end of the evening, thanks to the hard work of the chapter's Social Committee. The chapter honored four local charities: Charlotte Rescue Mission, Council for Children's Rights, Larry King's Clubhouse, and Little Smiles. In lieu of charging an event fee, members were asked to bring a bag of non-perishable food to donate to the Second Harvest Foodbank. The chapter was able to collect 1,125 pounds of food, which will provide 938 individual meals for neighbors in need.

Also at the event, the Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy presented a Corporate Pro Bono Award to Wells Fargo, NA for their outstanding pro bono service. ACC Charlotte extends a thank you to the generous event sponsors: The Partners Group and Thomson Reuters.
