Since the beginning, EatWorkPlay CLT has been focused on creating experiences and connecting young professionals.
While we planned to deliver an unforgettable experience to guests of the Charlotte and the Chocolate Factor Gala, an issue with a catering vendor and alcohol permitting threatened to make the Nov. 2 event fall short of our expectations. Thinking it would be best for the young professionals who purchased tickets, we made the decision to postpone the event and are now offering full refunds to those who cannot make the rescheduled February date. We apologize for the inconvenience and for those near and far who made plans to be with us. For you, we’ll be prepared to deliver an unforgettable experience during our February event.
Additionally, EWP has partnered with a number of charities over the past several years, giving thousands of dollars to organizations dedicated to making Charlotte a better place. But just yesterday due to a news report, we discovered that an oversight had been made in delivering contributions to two of those organizations in particular – Smart Start of Mecklenburg County and the American Cancer Society – despite EWP having continued communication and documentation that those contributions had been made. As an organization who makes good on all of our promises, we’ve since reached out to each of those groups, apologized for the oversight and provided promised charitable contributions that only add to the thousands of dollars we’ve given to Charlotte nonprofits on behalf of our city’s young professionals.
