Speedway Children's Charities along with Charlotte Symphony, Levine Children's Hospital, and Opera Carolina benefited from the Neiman Marcus Grand Opening Gala held in Charlotte, NC September 13th. The Neiman Marcus store located in Charlotte's SouthPark Mall is the first store the luxury retailer has built in the Carolinas with the other closest locations being in Atlanta and Washington, DC. The invitation only gala attracted over 800 guests from all over the country who got a sneak peek at the new department store but were also treated to good food, live music, and fashions from top designers like Chanel, Prada and Gucci. The proceeds through this effort helps Speedway Children's Charities continue our mission to help children with educational, medical and social support.
