It was a pleasure to organize and host the BOD Charlotte reception. We would like to give a special shout out to Charlotte’s very own George Price Jr. who donated his time and resources. George’s sister, Janice, sang and performed, and the Price brothers, as well his son Josh, provided the DJ, music, and lights. Many Thanks!
