Braiden Sunshine, a finalist a couple of seasons ago on NBC’s hit music competition “The Voice,” is scheduled to participate in a benefit for the Children’s Law Center (CLC) of Central North Carolina’s first-annual Birthday Blast.
The benefit is set from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 15, 2016, at The Millennium Center 101 West 5th St., in downtown Winston-Salem. Sunshine is the nephew of Iris Sunshine, the executive director of CLC and the director of Wake Forest Law‘s Child Advocacy Clinic, which is housed at the CLC.
Braiden Sunshine, who is now 16, will perform a couple of sets during the benefit before mingling with guests. The Dan River Girls, three young sisters from Winston-Salem, will also perform.
The theme of the birthday blast is “A Voice for Children,” which reflects CLC’s mission, according to organizers, who add that Braiden Sunshine is passionate about the importance of integrating arts into schools.
“Braiden’s participation in this event, along with the Dan River Girls, is intended to support this theme by inspiring children — children helping/supporting other children,” says Susan Conlee, director of development for the CLC.
