Established in 1957, the Boone Service League is an all-volunteer women’s civic organization serving Watauga, Ashe and Avery counties. Each year, the Boone Service League awards grants to High Country charities, presents scholarships to high school seniors and responds quickly to provide financial assistance to families in crisis. Boone Service League members also hold food and supplies drives and volunteer for the Meals on Wheels program, The Children’s Playhouse and other worthy causes.

As this year’s spring event, the Totally 80s Party is the nonprofit’s largest and most important fundraiser of the year.

The live auction begins around 7:30 p.m., with Jesse Miller serving as auctioneer. Auction packages include resort stays, weekend getaways, passes to area attractions, arts and entertainment events, gift certificates from the area’s finest restaurants, and much more. More music and activities will follow the auction.

Sponsors of this year’s fundraiser include Boone Dermatology Clinic; Allen Wealth Management; Appalachian Mountain Brewery; Reeves Divenere Wright, Attorneys at Law; Mountain Times Publications; Miss Match Rentals; Deer Valley Athletic Club; Boone Realty; Hidden Creek Management; and Gadabouts Catering; as well as many other silver and bronze level sponsors.
