While there is no shortage of worthwhile charity organizations operating in Western North Carolina, MANNA Foodbank was chosen based on a criteria of organization history, efficiency and community need. A food-distributing powerhouse for 18 Western North Carolina counties, MANNA is Asheville Vaudeville's choice for receiving a third of all proceeds from each show once the rental space, advertising and other budget items have been deducted. Based upon annual budget numbers for projected audience attendance, Asheville Vaudeville contributes an annual donation of $5,000.00 in charitable proceeds, or more than 12,500 meals!
