Dear Biltmore Community Benefit Sponsors and Supporters,
At Biltmore, our top priority is always the health and safety of our guests, employees, and community partners. Out of an abundance of caution, we wanted to let you know that we will be rescheduling this year’s Biltmore Community Benefit.
Recently, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services made the recommendation to reduce mass gatherings. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to postpone and reschedule this year’s Biltmore Community Benefit scheduled for March 26.
As a valued partner, we want to personally thank you for your involvement with this event. We were all looking forward to celebrating with you, especially in light of exceeding our fundraising goals for this year. We will be sharing that total amount with you soon and will notify you of the new date as soon as possible.
On behalf of Biltmore and Muddy Sneakers, our 2020 Community Benefit recipient, thank you for your understanding and for your continued support of this important fundraising event.

In Western North Carolina alone, Muddy Sneakers will work with more than 2,000 students this school year.
These students enjoy a unique opportunity: the experience of learning within a living laboratory, one only an outdoor classroom can provide, while exploring their community’s most valued lands. Bringing the science curriculum to life via hands-on learning, Muddy Sneakers programs provide the highest caliber outdoor science instruction in the state.
Proceeds from the Biltmore Community Benefit will help cover programming costs for all five Asheville City public elementary schools in the 2020–21 school year for more than 360 fifth-grade students. With six to ten expeditions throughout the year for each school, there are at least 2,170 student days of instruction, with approximately 1,450 of those programming days in Pisgah National Forest. This year, Muddy Sneakers expects to provide nearly 9,000 instruction hours in Pisgah National Forest to Asheville City students, which aligns with and extends George Vanderbilt’s legacy of education and conservation in the region.
