When: Sunday, Sept. 22, 5-8:30 p.m.
Where: The Grey Eagle, 185 Clingman Ave. $18; children 12 and under free. Info: avl.mx/005.
Why: When Peace Corps volunteers return to Western North Carolina, they bring with them a passion for helping others. The Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of WNC regularly engage with the community by working with several local organizations, including MANNA FoodBank, Homeward Bound, Habitat for Humanity and more.
The group will host a benefit for peace at home and abroad, featuring music by dance band The Business. The evening will include a silent auction with items from local businesses and artists. The public can meet Peace Corps volunteers and learn about their work overseas and at home.
The funds will benefit Homeward Bound of WNC and an international project developed by a current Peace Corps volunteer. If you're interested in the Peace Corps' mission or curious about the work its members do in our community, stop by The Grey Eagle for an evening of music, dance and socializing in the spirit of peace and charity.
