Smoothe LLC was the official ZimZoom photo booth sponsor of the 2020 Poe Gala on Saturday, February 22, 2020. The Poe Gala is presented by the Poe Young Professionals to benefit the Poe Center for Health Education. The Poe Young Professionals’ eighth annual cocktail event included a silent auction, raffle, drinks, and hors d’oeuvres at the Stockroom 230 in Downtown Raleigh. Guests included young professionals in Raleigh and the surrounding area as well as individuals and community leaders who value education and the future health of North Carolinians.
The event was a public way for the business community to support the health education needs of children and families in North Carolina. Last year’s Gala raised over $20,000 in unrestricted funds. More than 150 members of the business community came out to support the Poe Center’s mission and programs.
We had so much fun at this year’s event sponsoring the photo booth! We also had two items in the silent auction. A $180 Gift Card for Services and a Keratin Lash Infusion Treatment. We are so excited for the winners of these amazing prizes and even more excited that the proceeds of the event go to such a great cause. We enjoyed being out in the community and meeting new people, as well as seeing friends and Smoothe clients!
