Thanks to the heart and dedication of Ellen Holland, The Relatives was the recipient of proceeds from the 2010 Nutcracker Ball. This family event combines holiday cheer with charitable awareness in the Charlotte community.
Breakfast With The Relatives took place on Tuesday, November 9th, 2010 and raised more than $80,000 in unrestricted funds crucial to the operation of The Relatives and its programs. Dilworth United Methodist Church hosted the event--a fitting choice as they were the original founders of The Relatives from their church basement in 1974, and long-time supporters of the mission to keep kids safe and families together.
