The glorious Mar--a-Lago Club, an estate perched along the Atlantic Ocean in sunny Palm Beach, hosted over 350 elegantly-dressed supporters for Reconstructing the Future for our Children, an evening fundraiser to benefit the Carson Scholars Fund and the Paley Foundation.
The dynamic Greta Van Susteren, host of "On the Record" on FOX, opened the evening by recognizing the visionaries involved: Dr. and Mrs. Ben Carson, co-founders of the Carson Scholars Fund, and Dr. Dror Paley, founder of the Paley Foundation.
This week, the Carson Scholars Fund will be partnering with the Paley Foundation, an organization that develops and teaches new techniques to save and reconstruct the limbs of children and adults, for a blacktie gala fundraiser to benefit the education and wellbeing of children through both nonprofits.
More than 300 esteemed guests are slated to attend the “Reconstructing the Future for Our Children” gala on Friday, December 6, 2013 at the Mar-A-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.
Here at the Carson Scholars Fund, there are many people that make our programs possible. This year and every year, we are thankful to each and every person.
With help from generous donors, we have been able to open more than 90 reading rooms across the country and name more than 5,700 Carson Scholars. We are thankful for their continued support!
The Carson Scholars Fund got a dose of southern hospitality this weekend as our friends from the National Association of Small Trucking Companies (NASTC) hosted a “picture perfect” evening with co-founder Dr. Ben Carson. Thanks to the generosity of NASTC, all of the night's proceeds went to support the Carson Scholars Fund and its programs.

Last month, Sadé Diggs, a 2005 Carson Scholar, joined the staff of the Carson Scholars Fund as the Scholarship Development Associate. Meet Sadé:
I am a Carson Scholars alumna that received the award in 2005 at Winston Middle School. Although I was only in the 8th grade, the Carson Scholarship had sparked my interest in seeking higher education.
