Congratulations to the Generation Charleston committee for surpassing their fundraising goal for the Holiday Hope project. The Community Enhancement committee, co-chaired by Brooke Pauley, BB&T and Kate McCoy, Steptoe & Johnson, took the initiative to adopt a family for the holiday season through the YWCA’s Resolve Family Abuse Program. In order to purchase all of the items on this family’s wish list, the group set their fundraising goal at $1000. Because of the generosity and spirit of the Generation Charleston members, who helped raise more than $1200, this family of four will have a wonderful Christmas.

Thanks to all for making this a successful project!

Generation Charleston is the voice of the Capitol City’s emerging leaders. This group was formed by the Charleston Area Alliance to create opportunities for young professionals to get connected, engaged and make a difference in the area.
