Please join us for the Inaugural Second Chance Dine and Dance to benefit Benevolence Farm!
Launched in 2007, Benevolence Farm seeks to provide transitional housing, employment, and support for up to 12 formerly incarcerated women on our working farm in Alamance County.
Come out to the gorgeous Haw River Ballroom to celebrate our progress, learn more about why we're so passionate about our mission, and to enjoy food, drink, art, and music created by our amazing local community. Your $25 ticket includes a buffet of delicious food and dessert from local farmers, restaurants, and caterers such as Saxpahaw General Store, Sax Bax, Vimala's Curryblossom Cafe, Angelina's Kitchen, The Eddy Pub, Rose's Meat Market & Sweet Shop, and Company Shops Market. And many more!
The award-winning slam poetry group The Sacrificial Poets will blow you away with their moving performances, you'll be amazed by the awe-inspiring Cirque de Vol Studios acrobats, and we will close out the night with local musical act Steph Stewart and the Boyfriends. Guests will hear from North Carolina women who have served time in prison and now support this critical project, as well as from our founder and executive director, Tanya Jisa, about the strides Benevolence Farm has made in the past year. Finally, you won't want to miss the impressive silent auction featuring original artwork, gift certificates, and handmade goods donated by a host of talented and generous supporters.
See you soon! Dress is casual, laughing is encouraged.
