It started as an idea to "party with a purpose" in 1999. 20 years later, the Asheville Affiliates is a community network of over 3,000 members who've raised more than $500,000 for local nonprofits. Many iconic annual fundraisers actually started as Asheville Affiliates parties. If you're looking for a fun and meaningful way to get involved and give back, join us for a meet and greet.
Each year, the Asheville Affiliates selects three to four non-profits and hosts a fundraising party for each one, with volunteer board members assisting with planning, budgeting, venue selection, sponsorship, and marketing. This mixer is a great opportunity to find out what it means to become a board member or a non-profit partner. There's no pressure and you'll have an opportunity to chat one-on-one with current and previous board members.
This event is free and open to the public, but please RSVP so we can plan accordingly.
Board member and non-profit applications are available online at https://www.ashevilleaffiliates.com/contact-and-applications/
Thanks to Catawba Brewing Company for sponsoring the Asheville Affiliates since the very first year! #Cheers
