We would like to invite everyone to join us for The Big Cheese Ball - Friday, March 14th, 2014 from 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM at Oakwoods County Club - 541 Clubhouse Drive, Wilkesboro, NC. The event has been rescheduled due to the inclement weather last Friday.
This fun event will feature plenty of food (including cheese, of course!), refreshments, and the crowning of The Big Cheese in 2014! Ten wonderful Habitat supporters have joined our 2nd Annual Big Cheese campaign – a friendly fundraising competition supporting Wilkes Habitat for Humanity’s homebuilding fund – and this is the event that will cap it all off. It’s free to attend, so please invite your friends & family to join us at the ball.
