The Why:

Social capital changes lives. For the families living in West Charlotte’s Renaissance West neighborhood, the simplest connection or experience could change their life. You can be the reason that a resident finds hope, motivation, and the connection they need to obtain family-sustaining employment, launch their career, and change the trajectory for their children and the next generation. 

About The Event:

Join Renaissance West Community Initiative (RWCI) board members, volunteers, and staff to celebrate west Charlotte and the Renaissance and Little Rock residents and families. The inaugural Renaissance Mentors: A Night of Extraordinary Impact will be a night to remember!

The evening will be filled with opportunities to bid on quality time, mentoring, coaching, lessons, and experiences with prominent civic and business leaders, artists, chefs, athletes, musicians, bloggers, influencers, and more! When you bid, and hopefully win, both you and a resident at RWCI will receive the experience. Together, we can demonstrate that social capital, changes lives!
