For MANNA FoodBank’s 16th annual Blue Jean Ball, held Saturday, June 6, tables were lined up side-by-side to serve dishes from Biscuit Head, Tupelo Honey Café, French Broad Chocolate Lounge, Asheville French Quarter and many more. Lines of people surrounded each table as they waited to try each delicacy. Meanwhile, bands played and the crowd danced the night away as guests placed their bids in a silent auction.
The Blue Jean Ball, which took place at the MANNA facility off of the Swannanoa River Road, is MANNA’s largest fundraising event. Proceeds from each ticket and the items in the silent auction benefit the organization’s food security efforts in 16 counties in the Western North Carolina region.
This year’s event was sponsored by Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort. The theme was “Bowl Full of Soul.”
