The “Give Like A Star” annual hunger awareness campaign was started in 2011 by graduate students of Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, North Carolina. Despite the increasing research, medical and industrial growth of the city, the Winston Salem and Forsyth County lines contain an alarming rate of homelessness and individuals suffering from hunger.
According to “The Daily Meal“, Winston Salem, North Carolina ranks number one in the top ten American cities that are going hungry.
In an effort to combat this increasing public health problem, Wake Forest University students within the Graduate Student Association host a red carpet charity event every year to raise funds and awareness of hunger. The proceeds are then donated to a local charity of choice whose mission is to assist the Winston Salem community with providing food to families who need it most.
We ask that you come out and support us on November 16th, 2013 from 9pm – 2am at the Winston Salem Social Club located at 1131 Burke Street, Winston Salem, NC.
