"The Big Bad Ball is one of our premier fundraising events each year," said Michael Blanchard, Vice President of Development, Hospice of Wake County.

Attendees can refuel with a wide selection of hors d'oeuvres, food from a pasta station and carving station, desserts and the popular late night breakfast.
