Stand Up and Get Down for Teens
Stand Up and Get Down for Teens is our signature event and annual fundraiser. The 2013 event is Saturday evening, February 23, 2013 at The Fillmore. We will begin the night with dinner and Stand Up comedian, Shaun Jones, followed by a ceremony honoring the Dr. John G. Johnston Award recipient, The Junior League of Charlotte, Inc., and the winner of the Johnston Ziegler Youth Leadership Award.The evening will conclude with music from local band, Too Much Sylvia allowing everyone to celebrate and Get Down for Teens. This signature event perfectly captures our founders' vision.
In 1992 the Mecklenburg Medical Auxiliary Endowment along with a planning board of outstanding community leaders, stood up for teens, giving them a much needed medical and mental health home. Since then, our founders and community partners and friends have tirelessly gotten down in the trenches working to ensure that the needs of our community's teens and their families are being met.
Your sponsorship offers a unique opportunity to show support for the work that we are doing each day at Teen Health Connection. We hope that you will join us as we Stand Up and Get Down for Teens.
