YWCA Black & White Gala

2 May 2013

The YWCA of Asheville’s 8th annual Black & White Gala will be held on Thursday, May 2, at 6:30 pm, at the Crowne Plaza Expo Center. The Black & White Gala will feature high energy dance music by Westsound, a silent auction, and food from local restaurants. Festive black and white attire is encouraged. Tickets to this fundraising event are $50 per person.

The Gala is the wrap up party for the Stand Against Racism. The YWCA Stand Against Racism is a partnership of YWCA Associations throughout the country with the goal of bringing people together from all walks of life to raise awareness that racism still exists and that it can no longer be ignored or tolerated.

The mission of the YWCA is eliminating racism and empowering women. All proceeds from the Black & White Gala will go to support YWCA programs which bridge gaps in child care, education, health care, and earning power. The YWCA provides vital services to approximately 7,000 people annually.
