Family Services Foundation Gala

Our white-tie event will plant the seed for the Foundations’ mission, seeking to provide permanent financial support for Family Services, Inc. by stewarding assets in order to allow the organization to continue to be the bedrock of safety, security, and success for all citizens of Forsyth County as it has been since 1905.

Michelin Star Chef, Adam Barnett, will curate an exquisite, one-of-a-kind five-course meal. Our evening will include a raw bar of the most sought-after seafood flown in from all over the world, specially curated signature cocktails and the finest wines by Beverage Director Gwendolyn Hartless, and live music.

In the event of inclement weather, our event will be held on Friday, March 4, 2023. 

Located at 874 North Liberty Street, Winston-Salem, NC 27101, Robert Hall will host our gala in its three distinctly private event spaces:

Capone’s Bar
A space unlike any other, Capone’s resides on the second floor of Robert Hall. Through a set of stunning 1920s, brass entry doors are 2,500 sq ft of gathering space filled with natural lighting. Its period-inspired tin ceiling, rich naval blue walls, and salvaged knotty pine paneling set the mood for the authentic 1920s mahogany bar — said to have come from one of Al Capone’s hangouts in Bellemont, Michigan. Authentic down to the restored 1914 antique brass cash register and metal “vault” door, it creates a fascinating tale to tell over cocktails at a reception or among curious guests at your next party.

The Vault
The Vault room offers 2,500 sq ft on the first floor, preserved in its original, industrial look. Gray block walls, brick columns, and exposed sawmill plank wood trussing ceiling give you the feel of being in a secret space. Yet, The Vault connects to a 700-sq ft fully equipped commissary kitchen, perfect for caterers and pop-up restaurant innovators.

The Garden
The Garden outdoor patio space offers 2,100 sq ft that encompasses two outdoor fireplaces, beautiful trees and landscaping, and entertainment areas with ample seating. The Garden is also where you’ll find a wishing well that was discovered on the grounds during renovations, adding a touch of elegance and imagination to your next reception or intimate gathering.

One hundred seats are available for this premier experience. To secure your place, purchase your tickets below. If you can’t attend and still want to support, you can do that below too!
