A sell-out crowd turned out to support The Campagna Center as the organization held its third annual Bright Futures Benefit June 7 at United Way Worldwide.
Sponsors of the event included Career Ready Sponsor and 2019 Business Partner of the Year Passport Auto Group, who donated a 12-passenger van to shuttle students on field trips and transport materials and equipment to the center’s sites.
The evening featured a farm-to-table dinner accompanied by wine pairings, live music, live auction and a raffle.
Founded in 1945, The Campagna Center has evolved into one of Alexandria’s leading nonprofit organizations. The center provides children and families with high-quality early learning experiences, health and nutrition awareness, before- and after-school programs, enrichment learning and guidance through high school and classes for English language learners.
The Junior Friends of The Campagna Center provides critical fundraising and volunteer support to the Center and helps coordinate and plan events such as the Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend and Bright Futures Benefit.
Proceeds from the Bright Futures Benefit will be used to assist more than 2,000 children, teens and adults across the city.
