Harbor Club – WestEdge

The Charleston Leaders Annual Leader Gala is the premiere celebration of leadership in the Charleston metro area.  A gala is described as a social occasion with special entertainment or performances. In our opinion, there is not a more perfect backdrop to host a Gala Event than in Charleston.  Our annual signature event is celebrated by over 200 leaders in attendance to uplift the work of leadership in our community and collectively share in the achievements of all. We do that by creating the evening as a celebration of leaders, leadership and the work that they do on a daily basis that impacts our community. We provide an evening of connection, education and fun for all in attendance.

Charleston Leaders gives back to the communities they serve. Through our Leader In Me program, we host a silent auction to provide necessary funding for our program to adopt schools in the metro area and forward the thought that all children deserve to be great.  

The evening also celebrates the life of one of Charleston’s finest citizens and leaders, the late William Brian Moody. Mr. Moody was a respected businessman, councilman, friend, father, brother and son. He epitomized a life of servitude to family, country, and community.

The William Brian Moody Leader Award is presented to a deserving candidate chosen from independent nominations to recognize their contribution to our community. Our past deserving recipients of this award are Peter Wertimer, Chris Staubes and Kathleen Love. We look forward to a very long list of future recipients.

Our Leader Gala will happen on November 5, 2021 at the Harbor Club – WestEdge.
