The Beehive Collective hosts the annual Bee Ball as our biggest fundraiser. Every year, we pick a giving theme and donate a substantial grant to a Raleigh non-profit. We've given away more than $200,000 since 2008 and we're looking to make this our biggest grant year ever! 


What is the Bee Ball Royalty Court?

Each year we recruit fabulous members of our Raleigh community to competitively raise money in the lead-up to the Bee Ball. They bring in cash right up until the cutoff, just before midnight at the party. Then, we crown the winners! Think of it like a grown-up prom where the tequila is legal and the Kings and Queens are popular because of their philanthropic efforts! Ticket sales and funds raised by the illustrious Bee Ball Royalty Court go towards our grant goal for 2019.
