ABOUT A NIGHT OF SOUTHERN ELEGANCE

A Night of Southern Elegance, the foremost gala in Fayette County and one of the most prominent in the Mid‑South, is an elegant evening of fine wine and dining, an extraordinary auction, and lively dancing directly supporting Fayette Cares.

Typically a sold‑out event of nearly 500 guests from Fayette, Shelby and surrounding counties attend, with hundreds more supporting the event through auction donations and volunteerism.
