Caresse Hightower, is held the third Sunday in July and acts as a fund raiser for various orgnaizations that make a difference in the lives of women and children in our area. This year's event was a fundraiser for Women of Wisdom and the House of Refuge. There is always an auction and raffle with entertainment and refreshments at the close of this elegant soiree.

This year was an even more special event as they honored their own local celebrity, Mrs. Annie Hamlin Johnson, known as Mama Marv-tastic and to unsher int he 2011 National Black Theatre Festival which will be in Winston-Salem from August 1st-6th.
