It's time to celebrate! During the summer months, hundreds of volunteers “get dirty for a great cause” by joining river and neighborhood cleanups, creating and maintaining pollinator gardens, and participating in other environmentally-focused activities. At our 7th Annual Root Ball, we'll gather with our volunteers, friends, and supporters, to celebrate our love of WNC and our shared passion for keeping our communities beautiful. Tickets are $25 and include an all-you-can-eat barbecue-style buffet featuring Black Bear BBQ, Hickory Nut Gap Farms, Dr. King's Farm, No Evil Foods, and an array of locally-prepared sides. Enjoy complimentary alcoholic & nonalcoholic beverages including beer and cider (Wicked Weed), wine, and soft sparkling beverages (Devil's Foot Brewing Co). Music is provided by DJ Oso Rey. We'll also have a silent auction of outdoor, wellness, and entertainment-related items AND a raffle for native pollinator plants and trees. Whether your party shoes are high heels or Chacos, put 'em on and come out to show some local love to GreenWorks (voted 2019's #1 Nonprofit Who Improves Asheville in the Mountain Xpress Best Of WNC)! All proceeds benefit Asheville GreenWorks' critical programs in litter prevention, waste reduction, urban forestry, and environmental education.
