Asheville Affiliates name beneficiaries for 2010-attachment0

Four lucky nonprofits will receive fundraising and event-planning assistance from the Asheville Affiliates, a volunteer group of young professionals. Each year, the group selects a few nonprofits to assist. At a fundraiser last Thursday at Fiore’s restaurant, Affiliate board president Jessica Hunter announced the four organizations that the group selected this year:

Beauty Through Cancer
Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy
Asheville Community Theatre
The Asheville-Buncombe Community Relations Council

Hunter tells Xpress that 35 nonprofits applied to be Affiliates beneficiaries this year. See video below of her making the announcement at Thursday’s event.
