Jupiter Ball 2018

Friday, November 16, 2018, 7:00 P.M.

The Jupiter Ball will be at a new venue this year, the Barn of Chapel Hill at Wild Flora Farm! The evening will begin with a reception featuring local breweries and distilleries, followed by a presentation of the Jupiter Award to Joan Higginbotham, former NASA astronaut. A gourmet dinner provided by Snap Pea catering precedes dancing to a live band and skywatching outside (weather permitting, of course). Proceeds from this black-tie gala support enriching field trip experiences and outreach visits for schoolchildren across the state.
