It's still a long way off, but now is the time to secure your tickets.

For the first time, The Denim Ball will be hosted at Moses H. Cone Memorial Park on the Blue Ridge Parkway, at 6 p.m., Thursday, August 22.

This event is almost always a sellout so it's not too early to secure your seat.

Guests are invited to come out in their best denim attire to enjoy dinner, dancing, and drinks, while helping raise funds for the Manor.

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.
