Join us for our FINAL benefit event hosted by The Cabin Ridge to support The Free Clinics! Our generous hostess, Ms. Andy Owensby, will be retiring at the end of 2022, so please join us in wishing a fond farewell to this beautiful location!

Sunset Dining is a unique event in an unparalleled setting. The Cabin Ridge on top of Sugarloaf Mountain boasts stunning views of the surrounding mountains and Hendersonville skyline. You’ll bask in the glow of the sunset while enjoying a gourmet farm-to-fork seated dinner, wine pairings, music and dancing in a beautiful open air pavilion.

Featuring a local multi-course menu by Food Experience of Asheville, expert wine pairings by Crate Wine Market & Project, and a special guest patient who will share their health journey with The Free Clinics.

Tickets are $250 per person. Full tables and sponsorships are also available.

Attendance is limited. Guests will be assigned seating at tables of 8. Full tables of up to 8 guests may also be purchased to ensure your dining companions. 

Please note that this event is held at a site with some uneven terrain between the welcome hour at the barn and dinner in the covered pavilion. Comfortable shoes are encouraged!

The Free Clinics and all event staff will follow NC state guidelines and CDC recommendations for public gatherings in place at the time of this event.
