The 7th annual UNC Lineberger Beach Ball was held this year at the newly renovated Chapel Hill Country Club. The change of venue was accompanied by a fresh approach to the theme: a South Beach/Hamptons-style white party.
Over 600 guests, donning various shades of white and beige, enjoyed the party which also offered elements of Beach Balls past: live music by The Troupers, delicious food and drink, fun decorations, and a silent auction with a wide array of items to purchase. The event raised $110,000 to support the care and treatment of cancer patients, bringing the event's 7 year total to over $875,000
UNC Lineberger Board of Visitors members Janis and Jeff Tillman graciously opened their home for the pre-party cocktail reception, where more than 150 guests enjoyed an elegant reception poolside prior to the White Party.
UNC Basketball Coach Roy Williams and and his wife, Wanda, served as honorary hosts for the evening's festivities. UNC Football Coach Butch Davis and his wife, Tammy, joined the pre-party fun prior to joining the football coaching staff at the White Party event.
We are grateful to our 2010 Beach Ball lead sponsors: BlueCross & Blue Shield of NC, The Chapel Hill Herald, Butch and Tammy Davis, Eurosport, and Skanska.
