COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS 2018 BLACK WHITE & BLING Community Solutions’ “Black, White & Bling” Gala returned to the Granada Theatre on Saturday, November 4th for another elegant evening of fun and philanthropy. The Gala brought together enthusiastic and generous donors, sponsors, volunteers, and community supporters to raise awareness and funds for local children, families, and individuals in crisis. In addition to champagne, wine and a plated dinner, guests enjoyed live and silent auctions, and a rousing game of “Heads or Tails.” Some 6,317 individuals received services from Community Solutions last year alone. Over $115,000 in critical funding was raised to support the care and healing of children, families and individuals in crisis in our local community.
