The International House Annual Gala was an elegant and much anticipated event where all enjoy an evening of cocktails, fine cuisine, entertainment, dancing, and silent and live auctions along with other high-profile members of Charlotte’s philanthropic and corporate community. All proceeds from the event support and strengthen important services for Charlotte’s immigrants and globally-minded residents, including educational, legal and international exchange programs.
