Our 2nd Annual Impact Breakfast was a great success! We would like to thank everyone who attended and contributed to our mission of building awareness and support within our community. It is through these types of events and this very support that we are able to carry out our programs and deliver joy, care and hope to thousands of local homeless and impoverished children in our community. We look forward to seeing everyone again in 2016 for this impactful event!

Community Cornerstone Network
Strong Support Builds the Greatest Impact
Bright Blessings' Annual Impact Breakfast brings together service-minded individuals whose professional, civic, academic and faith networks help support local homeless children across the greater Charlotte area. Taking place at Myers Park Country Club, participants enjoy an exceptional breakfast, networking, and hear about the issues of child homelessness in our community and how we can work together to make an impact.
The benefits of community involvement for any business, organization or group stretch well beyond a particular project or act of service. Helping others through collaborative efforts fosters kindness and strengthens teamwork. Whether through contributions of time, talents or resources, the power of working together for the greater good creates positive change for both the participants and the recipients.
