The American Red Cross of Upstate SC recently celebrated the Back to 30's second annual Carolina Strong Soiree, where 100% of every dollar raised went directly to the American Red Cross. Guests enjoyed a night of fun, which included a silent auction, tasting of Greenville's best in culinary creation, a Porsche preview, and celebrity meet and greets with distinguished guests such as Coach Sam Wyche and Dave Sanderson from Miracle on the Hudson.
