Jupiter Ball

The Jupiter Ball is one of the most eagerly-awaited philanthropic events in Chapel Hill.

The Jupiter Ball opens the winter social scene each year on the Friday before Thanksgiving and provides an exclusive one-of-a-kind experience unmatched by any other event. Proceeds from this black tie gala support our Jupiter Ball fund, providing need-based scholarships for enriching field trip experiences and outreach visits for schoolchildren across the state.
