The Send of Summer Soirée

Save the date, get ready to get fancy and strut the green carpet. The Send of Summer Soirée is our first ever semi-formal fundraising event. 

What's in Store:

  • Engaging Talks: Connie Lightner of Climbing 4 Change, Kyle Long of NC ParaCliffHangers, and Anne McLaughlin will be speaking on equitable climbing access and the transformative power of climbing.
  • Culinary Delights: Indulge in an array of delicious hors d'oeuvres and dinner crafted by Tandem Carrboro.
  • Delicious Drinks: Sip on handcrafted cocktails and mocktails from our tasting and sipping sponsor, Durham Bottling Co., enjoy local craft beer from sponsors Ponysaurus, New Belgium Brewing, and Flying Beer Company, and choose from a selection of top notch wines
  • Silent Auction: Bid on amazing prizes generously donated by our sponsors, from local art to gear from your favorite outdoor brands. 
  • Dress to Impress: Climbers can clean up nice! Meet us there in semi-formal cocktail attire. Bonus points if you thrifted it!
  • Live Music: Swap your climbing shoes for dancing shoes as you enjoy acoustic elegance by talented musician and local climber, JP Flores.

Your event ticket grants you access to all of the above and more.

We’ll come together to celebrate our amazing climbing community, and to raise support for the CCC’s conservation and access work, and our new equitable access climbing program - MOSAIC. 

We could not do this event without support from our Venue sponsor Durham Bottling Company and our Catering Sponsor Tandem.
