Are you ready for the dance party of the year?

The YWCA of Asheville’s 8th annual Black & White Gala will be held on Thursday, May 2, at 6:30 pm, at the Crowne Plaza Expo Center. The Black & White Gala will feature high energy music by Westsound and a silent auction. Food and beverages will be provided by Mayfels, Frankie Bones, Westville Pub, Strada, Old Europe, Tupelo Honey, Crowne Plaza, French Broad Chocolate Lounge, Corner Kitchen, Sunny Point, Mela, Empire Distributing, Earth Fare, and Sierra Nevada. Tickets for this fundraising event are $50 per person.

Festive black and white attire is encouraged – you can be as funky or as formal as you want.

The Gala is the wrap up party for the Stand Against Racism. The YWCA Stand Against Racism is a partnership of YWCA Associations throughout the country with the goal of bringing people together from all walks of life to raise awareness that racism still exists and that it can no longer be ignored or tolerated. Stand Against Racism events will be held in Asheville and Black Mountain starting on April 22 (click here for a list of Stand events).

If you’re reading this blog, you know that the mission of the YWCA is eliminating racism and empowering women. All proceeds from the Black & White Gala will go to support YWCA programs which bridge gaps in child care, education, health care, and earning power. The YWCA provides vital services to approximately 7,000 people annually.

Sponsors of the Black & White Gala include Crowne Plaza Tennis & Golf Resort, Biltmore Oil Co./Eblen Short Stop Stores and The Laurel Magazine. See a complete list of sponsors here.

To reserve tickets,  call 254-7206 x 207 or make your reservation online.

See you on the dance floor!
