MARCH 7, 2024 - HOTEL ZAZA - 6:30 pm 

Join us for an enchanting evening of glitz and glamour as we step back into the roaring 1920’s! The Nehemiah Center is thrilled to announce the 2024 Great Gatsby Gala set to take place on Thursday, March 7, 2024, at the prestigious Hotel ZaZa. We invite you to dress in your finest fringe and top hats and join us in a lively Charleston under the dazzling lights.

This event is not just an opportunity to enjoy the gilded age of jazz, it’s also a chance to make a lasting impact on the children at the Nehemiah Center. Every year, we come together to celebrate the remarkable achievements of these at-risk children, ranging from learning to read to graduating college. We think our children are unquestionably the Bee’s Knees, and, of course, they will be there with another spectacular performance.

During the event, we will be honoring our long-time supporters, Rebecca and Christopher Herbold, whose unwavering commitment has played a pivotal role in the success of the Nehemiah Center. Their dedication and generosity have made a lasting impact on our mission, and we are honored to recognize their contributions. In addition to celebrating supporters, we will take a moment to remember and pay tribute to our beloved Melodee Jordan, Director of Education. Melodee’s passion, leadership, and tireless efforts left an indelible mark on so many. The evening’s festivities will be dedicated to her memory, as we reflect on the 20 years of profound impact she had on the lives she touched.
