Non-Profit Benefiting the Salvation Army Christmas Cheer Program
The Capital City Clauses board of directors is a team of volunteers comprised of young professionals in the Greater Triangle area. Each member brings with them a different background and skill set that help the organization collect more toys for The Salvation Army each year – and make the Jingle Ball one of the most unique holiday events of the year.
The Jingle Ball started in 1993 and was originally hosted at the N.C. Museum of History. After moving to Raleigh from Charlotte, Stephen Bryant was inspired to start a charity event to help families in need during the holiday season. He used the event model from Second String Santa based in Charlotte, but instead of Social Services, he approached the Salvation Army as the charity partner because the organization had a delivery mechanism for toy distribution and financial assistance already in place.
Since then, the Capital City Clauses have donated tens of thousands of new toys and provided financial support for the Wake County Salvation Army’s Christmas Cheer program. The event has since moved from the N.C. Museum of History to Disco Rodeo to the old Convention Center and finally to Marbles Kids Museum for the past several years.
