NOTE: As of Feb. 29, 2024, Carolina Youth Development Center (CYDC) has rebranded to Landmarks for Families. Our nonprofit, community programs and residential services remain committed to cultivating thriving youth and families in this new chapter.

Our 2015 A “Night for the Children” Gala was our most successful Gala ever, raising more than $237,000 to support the children served by the Carolina Youth Development Center! We simply could not have done it without the support of our myriad sponsors and vendors, who helped make this all possible!
