Great news–Casting for Hope is once again bringing the opportunity to have a great evening for a great cause in Morganton, North Carolina.  But we’re doing so at a different time of year, in a different format, and at a wonderful new venue this year. We made these changes after informal and formal conversations and surveys with many of you pointing us toward a positive change to this big fundraiser for the families whom we serve.  So…get ready for October 18, 2019 at Hidden Hills on Burkemont Mountain for our all new….

Hope in the Hills!



Two things we can assure you if you attend:

  1. You will be supporting a charity that is doing great things for women in western NC who are faced with the challenge of their lives in the battle against a gynecological cancer.
  2. You will have an evening to remember–great music and comedy, food, drink and time with a lot of friends.  You can’t help but have a fun night.


  • What:  Hope in the Hills
  • When:  October 18, 2019, from 6:00 until 11:00
  • Where: Hidden Hill Venue

So what will you experience that night?  

 Entertainment:  Some of our and your favorite local, regional, and national musicians will join us, as well as a well-known comedian, for a wonderful night of entertainment!  Musically, the evening will include Morganton’s own Michael Hefner and the Experience, a set from Mipso’s Joseph Terrell, and a performance by Mipso’s Libby Robenbough and friends.  We’ll also be joined by Morganton-native Josh Sharp, as seen on Comedy Central and HBO, for our first-ever comedic act. We know you will have the best offering of entertainment yet! 


Food and Drink: Countryside Catering will be providing the delicious dinner again of smoked chicken and steak with accompanying sides and dessert.  Complimentary beer and wine will be served all evening provided by Craft’d and Catawba Brewing Co. The After Party will also be catered by Countryside with more drinks from Craft’d and Catawba.

 Fun:  An evening full of beautiful viewscapes from the edge of Burkemont Mountain at Hidden Hill Venue at the peak of leaf season, great entertainment, wonderful food and drink, and helping others by your support of Casting for Hope can’t help but be a fun night with friends!

Ticket Levels:  We have streamlined the ticketing for this event since our capacity at the new venue is quite reduced from years past (We will only have 210 tickets to this event for sale vs. 300 VIP and Deluxe tickets in former years.)  All tickets will be $75 and be inclusive of all entertainment, food, and drinks for the evening.  

If you are interested, please email [email protected] and [email protected] with how many tickets you would like to purchase. Note that tickets will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis.

Thanks to all of our supporters for considering coming to the new iteration of this annual fundraiser.  If you can make it, we feel confident you will have a great evening of family fun.
