They are all distinguished participants of the Lunch with Leaders Auction at Leadership Asheville’s MASQERADE 2013: The Many Faces of Leadership.
Leadership Asheville's annual fundraising gala, MASQUERADE 2013 will be held at the Grove Park Inn Country Club on Saturday, April 6, 2013 beginning at 6:30pm. What makes this event so unique is its Lunch with Leaders Auction. Prominent leaders from Asheville business, government, health care, education and nonprofit communities have graciously donated their time for this auction. Individuals will have the opportunity to bid on a private lunch, donated by popular local restaurants, with the Leader they would most like to meet or know better.
Entertainment for the evening will include music, dancing and a silent auction which includes resort days, beach houses, passes to various local events and activities, cooking classes with top local chefs and more. Local beer and wine plus Heavy hors d'oeuvres will be served by the Grove Park Inn staff and a cash bar provided. Networking will be in full swing as up to 250 Leadership Asheville graduates and supporters will be in attendance. Masks are encouraged, but not required. All proceeds from the Lunch with Leaders auction and the silent auction will help support LA programs and events.
