Beyond The Stars

The 2018 Jupiter Ball will be held Friday, Nov. 16, 2018, 6:30 p.m. to midnight at The Barn of Chapel Hill at Wild Flora Farms and we are proud to be honoring Joan Higginbotham, former NASA Astronaut, now at UTC Aerospace Systems. We've also got some exciting new things happen for this very special Jupiter Ball, including performances from Cadence during the reception, wine from One Hope, a hot chocolate and coffee bar (alcoholic and non-alcoholic options available) and brand new auction items! We'll also be offering a free ride code from UberEvents, if you'd like to take an Uber to and from this year's Jupiter Ball, please let us know and we'll send you an Uber code.
