About the Event

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, MANNA FoodBank is able to turn two very special pieces of diamond jewelry into much-needed meals for neighbors across Western North Carolina. We invite our community of supporters to buy a ticket to join us in this meaningful and important start to our work in 2023.  

With a $500 ticket price and only 100 tickets to be sold, every Key 100 ticket holder will be invited to attend the reception on Feb. 1 with a guest, have a chance to win one of two fabulous diamond jewelry prizes and help provide 2,000 meals for neighbors struggling to afford groceries right now. 

About the Prizes

The prizes are as unique as this fundraiser: a distinctive 2.68 carat marquis cut diamond cocktail ring, set in 18K white gold and platinum, appraised at $10,500, and a stunning 8.75 carat weight, 14K white gold straight-line diamond tennis bracelet with 35 round brilliant-cut diamonds and an appraised value of $16,550. 

Have you been thinking about giving your loved one a “present with a purpose” for the holidays? A Key 100 ticket is just that! In addition to your chance of winning one of two fabulous prizes and enjoying happy hour refreshments and a gift bag packed with goodies at the reception on Feb. 1, MANNA will provide a beautiful certificate that you can wrap up now to gift to that special someone.
