On March 26, 2021 a very special evening was held at our foster community, Southmountain Estates. An art exhibit, hosted by the children at the foster community, included some of the children’s accomplishments during this year. Each child displayed a self-portrait, an art piece of their choice and a Zentangle (beautiful images created by drawing structured patterns). The children also presented a biography stating who they are and anything else they wanted to share about themselves. The foster community's violin class and guitar classes also performed. Children who have been participating in theatre activities showed off some of their improv skills.
This black-tie event was organized by Bianca Moses, Director of Community Relations at the Morganton-based Outreach Center, along with Adam Scott, Recreation Director for Southmountain Children and Family Services. “The children I have worked with are exceptional, and I am so thankful for all the love that is being poured into them and having the opportunity to work with them,” expressed Ms. Moses.
This special evening, enjoyed by over 75 guests, included hors d'oeuvres and a jazz playlist while everyone celebrated the special accomplishments of our children!
