City of Promise Holds Community Dinner in Charlottesville

Posted: Updated:

The City of Promise has a very specific mission. It wants to make sure every child has a chance to go to college.  

Thursday night, the group hosted a community dinner to give people a chance to network and share their stories.  

Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl champion D.J. Bryant was the keynote speaker. He says it's crucial to help kids follow their dreams.

"Any dream is possible. What you put into it is what you get out of it. If I can tell my story to a million kids and it just touches two of them, I did my job," Bryant said. 

The event also featured a drum performance and acts from other groups in the community.
