Good Friends Luncheon Dec. 12

One of the most meaningful fundraisers in Charlotte is coming up Dec. 12 from noon to 1:30 p.m. when 1,000 women gather for the 27th annual Good Friends Luncheon at the Charlotte Convention Center. 

The nonprofit uses 100 percent of the money collected at the event to help needy families and children in Mecklenburg County pay for small needs that make a big difference such as eyeglasses or a baby crib.

Last year’s event raised more than $160,000 that was used to help 2,700 people.

The cost to join is $65 a year. The luncheon is free for members; guests pay $20. Details:
