The Whirl: An Evening to Ignite 2024

On  Feb. 9, hundreds of individuals came together in support of nonprofit Neighbor to Neighbor, which works to reverse the effects of poverty on Raleigh’s youth. More than $200,000 was raised, with over 40 businesses from the Triangle events industry donating goods and services to ensure that 100% of the proceeds went directly to N2N. Supporting businesses included The Merrimon-Wynne House, La Fête Planning & Design, Curated Events, Rocky Top Catering, HL Catering, Party Reflections, EastCoast Entertainment (The Sleeping Booty Band) and more.
