As the cornerstone of the Foundation’s stewardship program, the Roper Xavier Society Donor Appreciation Gala has emerged as one of the most dazzling events in Charleston. The evening celebrates the generosity of our Rx Society donors and the accomplishments they help us reach. As a show of appreciation, no tickets are sold for this event and it is open only to members of the Rx Society.

Charleston Place Hotel

Featuring Rob Lowe
Actor, Producer, Director & Bestselling Author

We are excited to announce that Rob Lowe will be our special guest at the Tenth Anniversary Donor Appreciation Gala.  From iconic films like "St. Elmo's Fire" and "Wayne's World" to "The West Wing" and the hit NBC series "Parks and Recreation", Rob Lowe's roles are indelibly imprinted into mainstream consciousness.  

His road to success was not an easy one, and now he shares candid, funny and moving stories of his journey.  In an industry known for rejection and superficiality, Lowe has successfully managed to stay relevant and versatile, all the while facing his personal challenges, overcoming his setbacks and finding his way through to the joy and peace of successful marriage and fatherhood.
