More than 250 community members gathered April 30 for the 14th annual Progressive Dinner & Auction benefiting Greater Richmond SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now).
Art and Debbie Hungerford, owners of the Child Development Center at Wyndham in Glen Allen, opened their home for guests during the appetizer portion of the evening, which included a live auction.
Guests were then shuttled to one of the many dinner homes around the Windsor Farms, Westmoreland Place and near West End areas. This year, notable chefs, including James Beard Award nominees and Elby Award winners, joined the event, cooking some of the dinners in the homes. At the end of the night, guests reconvened at The Tuckahoe Woman’s Club for dessert, dancing and a silent auction.
“The generosity and kindness of those involved helps us ensure we have a successful and enjoyable event. I appreciate all of the time and effort to help us raise funds to continue SCAN’s mission,” said Cindy Joyce, a chairwoman of the event.
Bon Secours Health System and Estes Express Lines were this year’s title sponsors.
The event raised more than $175,000, benefiting SCAN’s five programs.
Last year, SCAN served 1,110 children and 382 adults who were affected by child abuse and/or neglect in addition to reaching more than 80,000 people through its prevention efforts.
