Jingle Ball




6:30 PM - 10:30 PM


It's Jingle Ball time!

On Dec. 6, join fellow philanthropists at Marbles Kids Museum for a night of food, drinks and fun while helping to brighten the holidays for Wake County children in need.  Guests are asked to bring an unwrapped toy for a child (newborn to age 12) valued at $20 or a $30 donation by cash or check.

As need grows, so does our goal!  Together with our community partners and your help, we hope to collect 5,500 toys in 2012 – more than ever before!  All toys will be donated to the Salvation Army’s Christmas Cheer Program.

An invitation is NOT required to attend the Jingle Ball; anyone 21 years or older is welcome. Each attendee is asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy for a child (ages newborn-12) valued at $20 or more. For those not bringing a gift, admission will be $30 by cash or check. Sorry, we cannot hold gifts for other guests – you must provide your gift at time of entry in order to be admitted. And don’t forget to bring your photo ID!

Food, Drink and Entertainment
Come eat, drink, dance and be merry for a good cause!  In 2011 our Diamond Food Sponsor, Rocky Top Catering, and our Diamond Beverage Sponsor, R.A. Jeffreys Distributing Company.  Entertainment provided by DJ P-Fitty.

Courtyard Tent
Last year’s heated courtyard tent was such a huge hit, we’re bringing it back again! Jingle Ball guests are invited to enjoy tasty drinks on tap from our local brewery partners, compliments of R.A. Jeffreys Distributing Company.

Coat Check
We are pleased to offer coat check services at this year’s Jingle Ball. Bundle up for the trip downtown, then let your party dress shine!

Dress for this event is cocktail attire. Ladies, wear your cute holiday dress you have been dying to wear. Men, dress with slacks, sweaters or even your most festive holiday tie. No jeans, please!
