For the first time in The Denim Ball’s history, we will host the fundraising event at Moses H. Cone Memorial Park at milepost 294 on the Blue Ridge Parkway! Cone Manor, the grand Colonial Revival-style summer home of Moses and Bertha Cone, will provide a gorgeous backdrop to the evening’s festivities on the front lawn, which will begin at 6 p.m., Thursday, August 22. Because of this special venue, tickets are limited. Tickets are $125 each and will go on sale at 10 a.m., Wednesday, May 1.

“We’re thrilled to celebrate the community’s commitment to this project at the amazing place that they so dearly love,” says Willa Mays, Chief Development Officer for the Foundation. “We are also grateful to the National Park Service for its cooperation in allowing this first-of-its-kind experience on the estate.”

Decked in their best denim attire, guests are invited to enjoy dinner, dancing, and drinks. More exciting details will be announced soon. 

In 2016, the Foundation kicked off a three-year initiative to meet critical needs at Moses H. Cone Memorial Park. Gifts from individuals, community partners, grants, and funds raised at The Denim Ball have generated more than $3 million toward the $3.6 million goal to rehabilitate the estate.

The Foundation would like to thank the event planning committee and sponsors Blowing Rock Tourism Development Authority, Cone Health, Modern Automotive, Mast General Store, The Rosemyr Corporation, Mountainaire Inn & Log Cabins, The Blowing Rock, and Blowing Rock Historical Society.
