Bee Ball—Raleigh's best party
You don't want to miss our biggest fundraiser and one of the best nights of the year.
Mark your calendars for May 12, 2018, and get ready to party for a good cause!
The 10th Annual Bee Ball is Saturday, May 12th at The Maywood (tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door).
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!
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 2018.
We'll update you with ticket info, our Bee Ball Royalty Court fundraisers, and our 2018 giving theme as we get closer. In the meantime, MARK YOUR CALENDAR so you don't miss it!
