More than just an evening of fundraising, Leeza Gibbons' Dare 2 Care charity event on November 11th, is a challenge to find ways to connect and care in our community. This year’s theme is “Find Your Rhythm”, and features musical performances, live auction, dinner and an open bar! All proceeds will go to Leeza's Care Connection, South Carolina's only comprehensive resource and support center offering free services for families facing chronic illness like Alzheimer's.

"Dare2Care is more than a fundraiser; it is a movement that underscores our belief that there is strength in kindness and caring," says Leeza.

The distinguished Columbia City Ballet will be opening the night with an astonishing performance! In addition, several group appearances will fill the space with RHYTHM. Live auction prizes include Panther tickets, a Custom Suit, vacation trips, and so much more! The event will be held at R2i2 Conference Center, 763 Fashion Drive Columbia, SC 7-10pm. Tickets are $100 to attend in person, $35 to attend virtually, and can be purchased at

Leeza’s Care Connection supports 1,000 families monthly that are caring for Alzheimer’s, stroke, Parkinson’s or some other chronic illness or disease. Our families have found that caring for themselves and connecting with others can increase the odds of better outcomes for their loved ones. Located in the original Mungo Home in Irmo, South Carolina, Leeza’s Care Connection is a free community center working to help families cope through tips, strategies, and support. Entertainment and news personality Leeza Gibbons created “what she and her family wish they had when her mother and grandmother were struggling with Alzheimer’s” and opened it right in the neighborhood her family once lived in.
