Report from The Carolina Ball: Great Success!
The Carolina Ball on October 9, 2015 was a beautiful evening of celebration. 350 generous attendees came together to raise more than $192,500 in proceeds to support the 2,200 families who stay with us each year. These funds will fully cover the cost to operate 6 of our 40 rooms for an entire year.
We appreciate the sponsors who made the event such a success, including Presenting Sponsor UNC Health Care, Gold Sponsors Performance Subaru and Triangle Implant Center, and Silver Sponsor BlueCross BlueShield of North Carolina. Thanks to all who contributed to the successful live and silent auctions and to Fund-a-Family, all of which made for a wonderfully successful event!
The event would not have been possible without the hard work of our House Party Planning Committee, chaired by Lucy Falk, and including Katie Corley, Ali Fromme, Nanci Jordan, Dana Pearsall, Elizabeth Richards, Jennifer Roberts, Lauren Sather, Kate Walton and Kelly Young.
We appreciate the additional in-kind contributions from American Party Rentals, photographer Steve Campbell, Carolina Brewery, Chapel Hill Magazine, The Fresh Market, Top of the Hill and Coca Cola Bottling Company of Durham.
Please save the date for the 2016 Carolina Ball: September 16, 2016!
We will post photos from this year's event on our Facebook page as soon as we can! Here are a few from the evening:
