Save the Date: Raise Your Hand 2017


We hope you will join us this year on Sept. 23, 2017 for our 29th annual event.

This year marks the Western North Carolina AIDS Project’s 29th Raise Your Hand Auction & Gala

Join the Asheville art world and take home a one-of-a-kind piece of this vibrant community. All proceeds go toward benefiting the only HIV/AIDS service provider in the region, with critical programs like prevention and education, advocacy, case management, and life-saving medical transportation.

Every year, participants pour in from throughout WNC, with visitors from nearby cities like Atlanta, Charlotte, and parts of Tennessee.



Reconnect with old friends and new faces, as you engage in friendly competition for a good cause!
