Bee Ball—Raleigh's best party
Bee Ball '19 is in the Books! Thank you to everyone that came out to throw down some cash, and party like they had 1999 Problems playing on stage - oh wait, they DID! What a great time! Thanks again to the folks at Glas for the killer neon - and to ALL of our amazing sponsors.
CONGRATULATIONS to our winning Royalty! Justin Kram, Alice Hinman and Kathryn Rende just killed it this year - you guys are ROCKSTARS! Our entire Royalty Court, including Kharmika Alson with Live Love Durham, Keller Williams Elite Realty, Erin Terry, Jen Fisher and Jen Davis with Little Guru Kids Yoga, and Chris Tonelli were an amazing crew, and we loved getting to know you guys. THANK YOU for raising over $20,000 towards the Beehive's giving theme of Environmental Justice. Still want to donate towards the cause? Go to https://beeball.swell.gives/.
Want to know more about Environmental Justice? Come on down to our Theme Panel, June 18th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at Google Fiber Raleigh. We'd love to see you there! We'll be introducing the awesome panel we've put together in the coming days.

What is the Bee Ball?
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.
