2012 Raleigh Giving Party

What were you doing on the first Thursday after Thanksgiving last year? At a house in North Raleigh, a group of friends was enjoying a cozy holiday cocktail party for a cause, ushering in the season while sipping, nibbling, mixing, mingling and anointing the first annual Raleigh Giving Party! By the end of the evening, we were blown away by our friends’ generosity in raising $9,715 to benefit four local charities. Our 2012 holiday wish is to do it again, and we hope you can join us as we throw a jolly holiday kick-off party to benefit local non-profits! What good can you do on

During a three-hour party, we raised over $12,000 for local, national and international charitable organizations. The donations were then given as alternative gifts to friends and loved ones of the party guests. We’re hosting our party again this year and can’t wait to see
