This premiere event, now in its 5th year, will take place at The Fairview Raleigh a sophisticated, urban event venue located downtown in the beautiful Five Points area.

During the cocktail hour, local renowned chefs will present unique hors d'oeuvres paired with craft beverages at interactive stations under a beautiful tent. Following this first course, we will come together for an elegant Sunday dinner, served family style! Polka Dot Mama is all about community and collaboration, and there is no better way to bring people together than a shared meal coupled with a touching program and live auction. Following dinner, there will be dancing and interactive dessert stations.

Tickets for the event are $250 per person. We expect 300 attendees and have sold out early every year.

Net proceeds benefit the Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation whose mission is to fund research, raise awareness, provide education and promote the early detection of melanoma. This event will give local businesses and sponsors an opportunity to gain exposure while contributing to a very important cause. The evening promises to host prominent members of our community who are dedicated to improving health and ridding the world of this terrible disease.
