Rusty Ball Coming Soon

One of my favorite local bands (and certainly my pick for band with the best name), the Rusty Griswolds, will once again put on the Rusty Ball. The event is scheduled for Saturday, November 21 beginning at 8:00 at the Duke Energy Convention Center. Fifty bucks gets you in the door, four drink tickets served by celebrity bartenders, and an $89 room rate at the Hyatt so you can sleep off all the fun.

The Rusty Ball has a serious side, too. The proceeds of the event (in particular, $30 of your ticket price) will be donated to charity. And even better, the money will go to the charity of your choice. A quick look at the "beneficiary list" reveals a large, diverse group of charities that will be supported by the ball. Whether you're interested in curing cancer, helping people with mental illnesses, or supporting the family members of injured or killed police officers, there's an opportunity to help a charity whose work you admire. You choose the charity your money supports at the time you purchase your ticket (or you can choose to support all of the charities).

I'm sure we'll have more on this as the Ball draws near, but I wanted to point it out so you can mark it on you calendars now, if you're so inclined.
