Thank you for making our 18th annual Blue Jean Ball one of the best ever.
We are still reeling from the incredible food, fun costumes, excellent beverage selection, great music, and celebrating with nearly 1,000 of our dearest friends!!
The Blue Jean Ball is one of the largest charity events in Western North Carolina, and we certainly couldn't pull it off without a lot of help...and that includes you! Everyone comes together to make Blue Jean Ball really count for those counting on MANNA for food: ticket purchasers, entertainers, food and beverage sponsors, and of course, our special event sponsors. 
As you go about the rest of your summer, please support the following businesses and organizations that help support MANNA! We could not move the food needed to feed thousands of families without these dedicated sponsors. 
This year, thanks to all ticket holders, sponsors, and donors, we were able to raise over $107,000 from Blue Jean Ball alone, and MANNA will be able to turn that cash into the food for over 376,000 meals!
MANNA's event sponsors help bring these fantastic experiences to life with their financial and in-kind support. We simply could not do the work that we do, moving over 37,500 meals worth of food every day, without them. Please support these wonderful businesses and organizations, and tell them that you appreciate their support of MANNA!

The Blue Jean Ball really is a mini local food festival. Every year, our culinary sponsors pull out all the stops to bring the most delicious small plates you can imagine, all matching the theme for the year. We LITERALLY could not put this event on without the passionate work and support of these wonderful culinary sponsors. The next time you dine with one of these restaurants, please thank them for their dedication to ending hunger by supporting MANNA's Blue Jean Ball!

The behind-the-scenes hard work that goes into getting a 1,000-person event off the ground each year is where the magic starts, and we would not be able to pull an event of this size off with such success were it not for a small army of volunteers! Our unending thanks go out to the incredible volunteers that give greatly of their time and sweat to make the Blue Jean Ball a fun and engaging event!

Special thanks to:
The Biltmore Crew
The Mosaix Crew 
...and of course, our MANNA Volunteer Crew!
