“P.I.E’s events are fun and enjoyable,” said Luciona Johnson, an Attorney in Charlotte. “I had a lot of fun at last year’s gala, and I got to support a great cause too – giving kids in the USA and Ghana an opportunity for a good education. I look forward to attending this year’s event,” added Ms. Johnson.
