Pull out the rhinestones, neon and space-inspired swag for An Evening to Ignite: Galactic Glam, a futuristic and philanthropic evening. This year, the annual fundraiser from Merrimon-Wynne House and Band Together will benefit No Women, No Girl. This local nonprofit collects everyday essentials like feminine products, toothpaste and shampoo for girls and women in the area who are experiencing poverty or are in crisis.

With the help of La Fête Planning & Design, prepare for an intergalactic evening of fun cocktails (Margarita from Mars, anyone?), rousing game tables and a packed dance floor thanks to tunes from nine-piece party band Light Years and local DJs.

For the menu, expect cosmic-inspired cuisine like “solar flare” bites and “nebular nachos.” “With your help, we can make an out-of-this-world impact on their mission: to provide hope, everyday hygiene essentials and education to women and girls in the Triangle area. Brace yourself for an evening encapsulated with cosmic cocktails, casino games, canapés, constellation stations and more,” says Mary Steury with Merrimon-Wynne.

Join the event on March 3 | 8 p.m. From $150;400 N. Blount Street;
