Jeans & Jewels Gala Brings Fun, Fashion, & Funds to Charlotte

Bank of America team members, Sandy Morgart and Amanda Glowacki hosted the fifth annual Jeans and Jewels Gala on May 31 at the Urban Garden in Charlotte for an evening of fun, fashion, and fabulous auctions all to benefit the 24 Foundation. The evening raised $16,000 in support of cancer survivorship and navigation programs in our community.

Aside from the auction items, The Inspiration Award — an award that recognizes an individual in the community who has fought the effects of cancer with great strength, but also serves as an exemplar of inspiration to other cancer survivors and to those involved with 24 Foundation — was a major staple of the event. The 2014 recipient of the Inspiration Award was Trish Ohr. Congratulations Trish!

Thank you to all donated and attended Jeans and Jewels in support of 24 Foundation! Check out some great photos from the event:
