Put your dancing shoes on, dress up, dress down, and get ready to party for a good cause with The Beehive Collective this Saturday night. If you’re unfamiliar with the organization, the collective is a group of young-ish Raleighites raising funds and awareness for local non-profits doing amazing work in our community. Last year, the group was able to give out $23,000 in grant money to two awesome organizations: the Raleigh/Wake Partnership to End and Prevent Homelessness and the Community Success Initiative. This year marks the second annual Bee Ball, with the proceeds going to help their 2010 grant recipients.
This year’s Ball goes down at 8:00 at the Berkley Cafe this Saturday with the musical delights of the Atomic Rhythm All-stars and a DJ dance party with Ock-N-Shaw. Cost is a mere $10 with a cash bar. Get your tickets online in advance!
Don’t forget to vote for this year’s Prom Royalty on their website. Each vote costs a dollar, with the winner getting the bragging rights for a full year. Running for Queen are Mary Ellis, Megan Wood, Sherry Derry, Elka Meano (Sonya Drum), and Abby Nardo. Eligible Kings are Trent Bowles, Taylor Floyd, Geoff Gann, Les Stewart, and Bobby Hilburn.
