January Joyfest started as a challenge and an idea – a challenge to raise $7,500 and an idea to host a fundraiser filled with things that gave us joy – special guests, hot air balloons, auction items, food, videogames on a jumbotron – anything that gave us joy to plan. What happened was a crazy, hilarious, fun event that people are still laughing about a year later. There is no way we could pass up doing it again. This year, Joyfest will take place on January 21, 2016 at Cattails Restaurant, located in Five County Stadium, home of the Carolina Mudcats. The theme is Casino Night! Real Vegas-style gaming tables and slot machines, special guests and live auction are all on the menu. Our goal this year is to raise $21,000 after costs to donate to Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina so they can grant wishes right here in Eastern NC. Be a part of the joy!
SNOW DATE: Jan. 28
