One of the Harbors Hottest Events in Charlotte County brought out 300 people this year to the 10th Annual Summer Ball, Celebrating Generations of Hope.
The 10th Annual Summer Ball presented by the Fred Lang Foundation in partnership with Charlotte Behavioral Health Care was held Saturday, July 27th, 2013 at the Charlotte Harbor Event Center. The Crashers were the entertainment for the evening and their performance brought a lot of entertainment to the attendees.
The Summer Ball is the annual signature fundraiser that benefits children, adolescents, and families of Charlotte County who are in urgent need of crisis counseling, mental health counseling and/or addiction treatment at Charlotte Behavioral Health Care. Funds from the Fred Lang Foundation are donated to CBHC to underwrite services for low income residents of Charlotte County. Without the Foundation’s assistance, some children, teens, adults and families might not be able to get the help they need.
This year’s Summer Ball raised over $28,000, which will go directly to providing services at Charlotte Behavioral Health Care. CBHC currently provides services to over 10,000 individuals in Charlotte County, 3,000 of which are children, who cannot afford mental health and/or substance abuse counseling.
