WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Around 600 people came out tonight to celebrate the end of summer.
The seventh Last Chance for White Pants Gala was Saturday night.
The Lower Cape Fear Hospice hosted this event as a fundraiser and as an appreciation to those who have supported hospice.
The event was at the Audi dealership in Wilmington.
A silent and live auction was held along with a live band for entertainment.
The white pants chair, Linda Brown said she thinks it is important that the community comes together to support events like this.
“I think it is very important. Wilmington has got it’s own kinda niche. We’re not Raleigh or Charlotte, we’re not a small town and all the people in this community are the same folks who support all of the events and non profits in our community, and I think that’s what is so special about it,” Brown said.
Brown also said she has a lot of fun at the event each year, but it is important to remember the cause.
