Drums & Dragons is WNC Bridge Foundation’s premier fundraising event and has raised over $120,000 benefitting local area non-profits in Western North Carolina since its inception in 2017.

Your generosity allows us to continue our support of area non-profits and programs sponsored by the WNC Bridge Foundation. Every gift from our caring donors, regardless of its size, can create a meaningful impact and make a lasting difference in the lives of those who need it most. By giving to Drums & Dragons, you can join us in becoming a catalyst for change in our community, creating a better Western North Carolina for all.

WNC Bridge Foundation programs such as the "You're Special" Fund provide hope, comfort, support, and security for our WNC neighbors. Here we are able to directly assist financially impoverished individuals in crisis situations, helping them to pay for necessary items that are not covered by insurance; such items as hip kits, grab bars, glucose test strips, medications, and tub transfer benches, and life saving medications for low-income stroke survivors.

In 2019, the You're Special Fund served 904 people in the WNC region, committing over $55,000 in funds to assist. The "You're Special" Fund is used only to pay for expenses that are not covered by another source.
