"OASIS is the local non-profit agency serving victims of domestic and sexual violence. This year we are celebrating 39 years of service and we want to celebrate with you! 
Please join us at our 14th annual “Midnight at the OASIS” fundraising event on Friday, May 19th. The event will be held at the Meadowbrook Inn & Suites in Blowing Rock, NC. Doors open at 7 PM and the dance party will last until 11 PM.
As in years past, there will be heavy hors d’oeuvres with Middle Eastern themed food and a cash bar. The Asheville-based band, Laditude, will be back by popular demand! Be sure to bring your dancing shoes!
Tickets are $35 each, and one hundred percent of proceeds raised at this event will be used to operate OASIS’s confidential, emergency shelter for victims and families fleeing intimate partner violence.
Event tickets available now! Visit for more information."
