We had such a great time at our Inaugural Turkey Ball and we are already planning for next year! Thank you to everyone who came out and donated to help us provide turkeys to families who may not be able to purchase one for their Thanksgiving meal.
At the end of the night, we raised $4,257.41 which means we were able to purchase 500 turkeys to donate to Catholic Parish Outreach, Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, Urban Ministries of Wake County, and The Salvation Army of Wake County. Here’s a picture of some of the turkeys getting ready to be delivered.
Special Thanks to our Generous Supporters
We would like to thank all of our amazing sponsors who made it so all of the money we raised could go to help those families in need. Cheers to R.A. Jeffreys who provided all the wine and beer for the evening!
We would also like to thank Sam Burkardt for capturing the evening perfectly in the images below. You can see more of her work at SamBurkardt.com.

About the Inaugural Turkey Ball
The Inaugural Turkey Ball took place on Thursday, November 8, 2018, at Mulino Italian Kitchen & Bar. For just $25, patrons were able to purchase a turkey for a family in need and they received one admission ticket and one drink ticket to the Turkey Ball.
At the event there were Italian favorites from Mulino, cooking demonstrations, wine tastings, and more. We look forward to seeing you at next year’s event and would like to thank you again for your donations. Happy Thanksgiving! ?
Delivering the Turkeys
We had so much fun delivering the turkeys to our distributing partners. Check out the photos below.
