The Sheriff’s Ball, sponsored by the Duplin Foundation for Youth Advancement, is held annually to raise money to support youth programs in Duplin County. Established by concerned local residents, the Duplin Foundation for Youth Advancement’s mission is to provide local children life-enhancing programs and character development experiences that give youth opportunities to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. Since the inception of the Sheriff’s Ball, we have raised $590,000 with the generosity of local citizens and businesses. In conjunction with the Duplin County Community Foundation, an affiliate of North Carolina Community Foundation, grants from the fund are awarded annually to nonprofit organizations that meet a defined set of criteria. Funds are awarded solely to serve the youth of Duplin County.
Celebrating it’s 12th year, the Sheriff’s Ball is focusing on activities throughout River Landing’s entire Clubhouse. Doors will open at 6pm, leading you into a wonderful night of dinner, music, live and silent auctions, and raising money for the youth of Duplin County. Please join us this year as we make the 12th Anniversary of the Sheriff’s Ball an event to remember!
