The Mercy in the Community Luncheon was held at The King’s Kitchen, a well-known restaurant that donates 100 percent of their proceeds to help feed the poor in Charlotte. Everyone enjoyed the amazing upscale southern cuisine and friendly atmosphere. The restaurant is owned by longtime Mercy supporters, Jim and Karen Noble, who welcomed everyone to the event.

Guests also had the opportunity to hear life-transforming testimonies from Mercy graduates, Julia and Alyssa. Julia, a 2001 graduate, came to Mercy with an unplanned pregnancy. She spoke about her decision to place her daughter for adoption and how she is now fulfilling her lifelong dream of serving as a missionary around the world.
