Thank You Carolina Hurricanes!


At StepUp, we love to celebrate—to celebrate the generosity of our donors, or the successes of our participants, or the dedication of our staff. No matter the reason, we often gather to share joys, share a meal, or simply share a high five.

Renaissance Gala

In December, we gathered to celebrate the generosity of the Carolina Hurricanes, as well as all our children have learned through the Raleigh Renaissance. The children have been taking etiquette, art, and spoken word classes, and the Renaissance Gala was a chance to show off their new talents.

We listened to beautiful music, saw creative artwork, and heard inspiring spoken word pieces, all crafted by our incredible Children’s Program participants. Thank you to the Carolina Hurricanes Kids 'N Community Foundation for allowing our children to gain exposure and opportunity in the fields of arts and etiquette.
