Asheville Affiliates fundraiser to benefit Colburn Earth Science Museum on May 8


Here’s the 4-1-1, from loyal reader Sarah:

I serve on the board of the Asheville Affiliates and we have our first big fundraiser party of the year coming up next Thursday, May 8th, at 6 p.m. at Pack Place. It’s called “Under the Stars” and benefits the Colburn Earth Science Museum.

It will be a pretty awesome event (if I do say so myself). Live music will be by Brushfire Stankgrass and there will be great food from local restaurants plus beer by Catawba brewing and wine by Skyland Distributing, all included in the ticket price. The funds from this event will really help the museum in updating their exhibits. We’d love to have a great turn out for it. And I think it will be a really fun, entertaining event. Brushfire Stankgrass is fantastic.

Tickets for the event are $20 in advance, $25 at the door and include beer, wine, food, and entertainment. Advance tickets are available for purchase either by visiting the Colburn Earth Science Museum in person, or by calling 828-254-7162. Attendees can also receive advance ticket prices via an RSVP on the Facebook page for the event,
