On Saturday, April 29, more than 100 people helped Friends of Winston-Salem celebrate 25 years of service. The celebration held at the Village Inn Event Center in Clemmons featured a disc jockey, food and a live auction. Proceeds raised during the all-white extravaganza were donated to the SECU Family House, an organization that provides lodging for hospital patients and their families.

Friends of Winston-Salem is an organization of 17 women serving the local community. The nonprofit provides service year-round at several places including the Ronald McDonald House, Hospice, SECU Family House and the Salvation Army.

While taking a break from the dance floor, Kim McKenzie-Banks said she was proud to be a part of an organization that works diligently to make the city of Winston-Salem a better place for everyone.

“After 25 years, it feels good to know that we are still making a difference in the lives of people who need it most,” said McKenzie-Banks. “I’m truly honored to be a Friend of Winston-Salem.”
