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 6, 2017, and get ready to party for a good cause!

The 9th Annual Bee Ball is Saturday, May 6th at The Maywood (tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door). We're at a new venue this year!

The Beehive Collective hosts the annual Bee Ball as our biggest fundraiser. Every year, we pick a giving theme -- recent themes have been housing and immigrants' rights -- and donate a substantial grant to a Raleigh non-profit. We've given away more than $150,000 since 2008 and we're looking to make this our biggest grant year ever! We're proud to announce that our 2017 giving them is Health and Healthcare. Ticket sales and funds raised by our Bee Ball Royalty Court go towards our goal. 

Check out our illustrious 2017 Bee Ball Royalty Court here. You can start casting your votes for your favorite Queen or King right now - and get your tickets to the Ball!
