If you are a local business in Charlotte and would like to align your organization with us by helping families in your own community, Claire’s Army is simply asking you to do what you do best. If you are a service-oriented company that can fulfill a need for these families while they care for their sick child, we can use your help.
Pridemore Properties joined us in 2013 as our very first corporate sponsor. Scott Pridemore and his team have stepped up each year to be the title sponsor of our golf tournament. In addition, he pledges to contribute $50 for every real estate transaction towards our cause. Please consider Pridemore Properties when buying or selling your next home.
This firm joined us in 2014 as part of their 25th anniversary in Charlotte. Their employees collected items for Claire Packages and needed supplies that are not normally donated. They hosted a successful pancake breakfast and printed their own custom Claire’s Army T-shirts to wear on Fridays. Their energy has been a springboard for us in the pursuit of care for families in need.

Rooster’s Wood-Fired Kitchen
Rooster’s is part of Noble Food and Pursuits – owned by Jim Noble.
They donate dinner every Friday night as part of our meal program for oncology patients and their families. Rooster’s even created a special menu suited for pediatric patients to make the experience just that special. Additionally, to make the process seamless for our volunteers – they offer drive thru service so our volunteers don’t even have to get out of the car on College Street in uptown Charlotte! They offer this every Friday – whether there are only 2 patients or 15. We are so thankful for their partnership and their desire to help heal our families with the comfort of food.
