Everyone’s favorite end-of-summer celebration is back at Modern Aviations  The Hangar at ILM airport. This year will offer guests the same amazing evening of food, drink, dancing and auctions they love with a new band. We’ll also be hosting a First Chance for White Pants pre-party event planned for Sunday, June 4, at Waterline Brewing, from 2-6 p.m. (Scroll to the bottom of the page for more info!)


Sponsorship opportunities are now available for the 2023 Last Chance for White Pants. Contact Cindy Cheatham at 910-473-4142, or email

A large portion of this year’s gala is dedicated to supporting our Memory Partners dementia care program.

Memory Partners is a consultation-based program that provides caregivers of loved ones living with a dementia-related illness the education, support, and resources they need to improve quality of life for the entire family. The program offers support groups, education opportunities, and regular evaluations to determine when other care services, such as palliative or hospice care, may be appropriate. One of the most essential parts of the program is in providing respite care. Funds raised will help us provide the respite care that family caregivers desperately need.

We are excited to announce that this year The Block Party Experience will be taking the stage providing a high-energy dance mix to keep you on the dance floor all night long.
