Heart of the Matter

2021 Heart of the Matter & Tinman Awards
Annual Luncheon & Fundraiser – Virtually

Coming Soon!

Our 7th Annual Heart of the Matter & Tinman Awards is happening!  We are seeking generous sponsors and advocates to Host this event.

Due to the restrictions associated with the ongoing pandemic, The Carousel Center’s board of directors has decided to focus on Heart of the Matter as our single fundraising event of the year. 

It is because of your support that helps make it possible for Carousel Center to continue its mission to provide a nationally accredited, child-friendly environment to meet the needs of abused and neglected children and to support child abuse prevention efforts in Southeastern North Carolina.

All proceeds from this event will support the Carousel Center Child Advocacy Center, and our programs to treat and help about 500 children affected by abuse and trauma annually.  This fundraising event helps our most vulnerable children to receive the healing they deserve, and enable them to have a chance at a happy and healthy childhood.  Feel free to share with any group you think may like to participate and let us know if you have any questions.  I hope you’re able to join us for this informative event.
