Save the Date for the 10th Annual Black & White Gala!

12 Mar

savethedate_finalWe are pleased to announce that this year’s Black & White Gala will be held on Thursday, May 7, 2015 at Asheville’s Crest Center & Pavilion!

Over the past nine years the Gala has emerged as one of Asheville’s premier events; it was voted one the top fundraisiDSC_1949-3221053344-Ong events in Western North Carolina (WNC) in the 2014 Mountain Xpress Best of WNC. The event is arguably Asheville’s most culturally diverse party, allowing attendees from all backgrounds to enjoy the experience of coming together for a good cause.

The Black & White Gala features live music and dancing, a raffle, great food and drinks, and opportunities to advocate for peace and justice.

The Black & White Gala is a fundraiser for the YWCA of Asheville, and a joyous celebration of our Stand Against Racism.  The Stand Against Racism is a signature campaign of YWCA USA to build community among those who work for racial justice and to raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in our communities.

DSC_5218-3221061925-OSponsors help Gala grow as a fundraiser and as an opportunity to build understanding of the work of the YWCA and our partners. Sponsor support offsets the cost of the event, such as venue rental and food, allowing ticket sales and raffle donations to go directly to program support for the community. It’s not too late for your business to sponsor the Gala – learn more here or by contacting Alison Gooding at 828-254-7206 x. 207.
