Lip Sync Battle Spartanburg
The Charles Lea Center Foundation is proud to introduce our 2nd annual Lip Sync Battle Spartanburg 2023 event! We are bringing the hit reality show to The Arena at the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium on Saturday, September 30, 2023. Doors open at 6:00 pm, showtime 7-10 pm. Who will win the battle and “Rock the Mic?”
One the Charles Lea Center Foundation’s signature fundraising events for 36 years is “a scavenger hunt in a car” which leads carloads of participants through a mystery or puzzle with driving clues that take them around the community. A fun, celebration dinner follows the rally with a DJ, dancing, family friendly games and prizes. Sponsorships opportunities range from $250 to $10,000 and offer many great marketing options. Tickets for our celebration dinner are $50 per person.
RJ Rockers Golf Tournament
Brewmeister Mark Johnsen has hosted this tournament benefiting the Charles Lea Center for 18 years. This event has a loyal group of RJ Rockers beer-loving supporters! The tournament fills up every year with more than 30 foursomes.
Kiwanis Pancake Supper
For More than 40 years, the Spartanburg Kiwanis Club has put on a pancake supper to benefit the Charles Lea Center. Food and paper products are donated by Denny’s Corporation and Kiwanians sell space in newspaper advertisements and tickets to raise over $25,000 from this event.
March Campaign Celebration – Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month
March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. To help raise awareness our goal is to fill up the March calendar with locally-owned business partners. We will encourage community members to visit their stores/companies and in return the business owners will support us! We are having a wonderful response by local merchants who are participating by either choosing a day(s), week or the entire month to host what we are calling a “give back” day(s) to the CLC Foundation. We are so thankful for the support of small businesses and excited to urge everyone to support them as well. Essentially, these businesses are making “Dreams Possible” for our 1,500 individuals with special needs and disabilities right here in Spartanburg County. We like to call our partners “Community Champions” and we appreciate their commitment to help us spread awareness and raise funds. This campaign is a collaborative effort and we want to make sure all the

The vision of the Charles Lea Center Foundation is that sustained financial resources are available to the Charles Lea Center for future generations.
