In the spirit of the season of giving and in celebration of music, Harmony Interiors is hosting a Holiday Vinyl Night Benefit with all donations supporting Haywood Street! $20 suggested donation, however, feel free to give as you are able. Drinks and snacks will be provided alongside an amazing sound system to hear your favorite vinyl records. Bring a few of your own records with a story to tell or pick from the large collection available. Cool holiday records are welcome ?. $2 records will be available for purchase, proceeds also benefiting Haywood Street. Asheville Brewing will provide draft beer and an assortment of holiday treats will be available.

Please help us honor the lives of these precious children of God. 

Our gratitude goes out to Sodexo at Warren Wilson for Sunday’s Breakfast and UNCA Chartwells for Wednesday’s lunch at the Downtown Welcome Table! Such wonderful partners and friends of the community.
