A MoneyFair Event for the Books!

MoneyFair ’18 was a Huge Success

The attendance and excitement from this year’s MoneyFair event was overwhelming. Visitors walked the booths and joined classes at the Royal Life Center this past April in numbers shattering previous years’ records.

At this free event, guests were busy with classes, vendors, products, giveaways, a Pastoral panel, and more. Our inaugural Pastors & Leaders Money Round Table had great attendance. Moderator Alexis Simmons from Live 5 news led the round table discussion on faith and finances. Reverends Issac Holt and Nelson Rivers joined Pastor Tonia Taylor on the topic, providing lessons and insight for attendees. The round table was a great success and will be an addition for future MoneyFair events.

Our classes had full attendance as guests listened in and made notes on financial management. Our numerous vendors set up tables for giveaways and food as hundreds of Charleston residents made their way through the Royal Life Center.

“We ran out of information to give away it was so well attended,” one vendor remarked.

We agree.

The MoneyFair Mission

At the heart of MoneyFair is a desire to help Charleston residents learn to invest in themselves and their financial futures. It’s a mission that aligns with Increasing Hope’s mission – creating financial freedom for families in South Carolina.

Through education, we are helping people experience financial freedom. We could not do it without our sponsors. Our premier sponsor, South State Bank, and other businesses such as PNC, Pinnacle, South Carolina Federal Bank, BB&T, TD Bank, Woodforest National Bank, and SunTrust, provided the resources to make this event a reality. By partnering with us, our sponsors provided a gateway for financial education to reach the Charleston community.
