Our Mission is to inspire Duplin County citizens to make lasting and meaningful contributions to our community that benefit our children.

The Annual Duplin County Sheriff’s Ball is held annually to raise money supporting youth programs in Duplin County, North Carolina. We are excited to once again have the use of River Landing’s entire Clubhouse. Doors will open at 6:30pm, leading you into a wonderful night of dinner, music, and dancing — all while raising money for the youth of Duplin County. Please join us this year as we make the 2019 Sheriff’s Ball an event to remember!

The Sheriff’s Ball, sponsored by the Duplin Foundation for Youth Advancement, is held annually to raise money to support youth programs in Duplin County. Established by concerned local residents, the Duplin Foundation for Youth Advancement’s mission is to provide local children life-enhancing programs and character development experiences that give youth opportunities to reach their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.
