Help Asheville Sister Cities Raise Funds for a Directional Sign

ASCI needs to raise $5,000 for a directional sign placed in Pack Square near city hall! We are a little over half way there and we need your help! Please click here to donate!

We want every citizen and visitor to Asheville to know that ASHEVILLE SISTER CITIES is an important part of our community fiber.  By placing a directional sign in a prominent spot, we hope that everyone can now be more aware of our great organization.

ASCI would be honored to have you listed as a Sponsor for our Directional Sign. We will place the names of all who contribute on our website and in the ASCI newsletter. We also plan to have a ribbon cutting ceremony on site in the new year! 

Thank You to Our Corporate Members
