Aug 15 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Eliada Homes

WHY: To learn more about our mission and raise funds which will provide shelter, residential treatment, education, and life skills for children and young adults at Eliada. Helping children and teens in crisis develop the skills they need to overcome life’s obstacles and become productive adults helps ensure the future of our community. But we cannot do it without your support.

MISSION: Helping Children Succeed

SERVICE AREA: State of North Carolina – Eliada serves more than 500 children annually through 5 key programs that provide a place to live, education, special education, food and clothing, and intensive therapy to children who need these services. While most children are from Buncombe and surrounding counties, Eliada serves children from all corners of NC.

Thank you for helping us share Eliada’s mission with the community!

Where elegance meets compassion. Fur Ball is an elevated gathering to celebrate our animals and the tireless efforts of those who advocate for their well-being.

Join us for an enchanting evening!

Guests will also enjoy a Puppy Love Room with adoptable dogs, a fun photo booth experience, exciting auction and raffle items, and an interactive 50/50. Special thanks to WLOS Meteorologist, Meghan Danahey, for being our emcee for the evening!

This year’s event is also dog friendly for dapper pups! A limited number of dog tickets will be available for furry guests to enjoy a Barkcuterie Bar, their own Doggie Dining Station, and each pup will receive a doggie bag to take home gifts (and leftovers!).

Together, we can create a brighter future for our beloved companions.
