Annual Gala

Make Your Mark on Harnett County
Join the Cornelius Harnett Charity Gala!

Imagine this:

  • A bright-eyed student receives a college scholarship, their future brimming with possibilities.
  • A dedicated teacher is celebrated for their outstanding contributions to education.
  • Countless community organizations receive vital support, strengthening the fabric of our beloved Harnett County. 

Now, picture yourself:

  • Raising a glass and sharing laughter with friends and neighbors at a festive gala.
  • Savoring delicious hors d'oeuvres and enjoying music and dancing for all ages and tastes.
  • Witnessing the impact of your generosity through captivating visual presentations.

This is the magic of the Cornelius Harnett Charity Gala, a cherished tradition for 37 years, hosted by the Rotary Club of Lillington. For one captivating evening, we come together to celebrate the legacy of Cornelius Harnett and invest in the future of our community. 

You contribution makes a world of difference:

  • Empowering local students: Since its inception, the gala has funded over 120 college scholarships, opening doors to higher education and brighter tomorrows.
  • Applauding outstanding educators: We proudly present the Harnett County Teacher of the Year Award, recognizing dedication and excellence in shaping young minds.
  • Strengthening our community: From providing dictionaries to third graders to supporting Rotary Youth Leadership Academies, the gala's reach extends far and wide, touching countless lives.

But our impact extends beyond our borders:

  • We stand united with The Rotary Foundation in eradicating polio from the face of the earth. With only two countries reporting cases in the past year, the dream of a polio-free world is tantalizingly close, and your support fuels this critical mission.

Join us on Saturday, April 13, 2024, from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM at the Harnett County Resource Center for an unforgettable evening of good company, delicious food, and heartwarming impact.

Reserve your spot for just $50 per person or consider one of our generous sponsorship options. Gather your friends and make it a night to remember – we'll gladly reserve tables for groups of eight or more.

Let's raise a toast to Cornelius Harnett, to our community, and to the transformative power of collective action.

Together, we can build a brighter future for generations to come.
