House of Hope’s 16th Annual House of Hope Charity Ball and Auction will be Saturday, April 21 at the Higginsville Community Center. The event boasts live and silent auctions, cocktails, dinner and music. A beautiful pearl necklace and matching ring, generously provided by Kennedy’s Custom Jewelers, will be raffled during the event, as well as an exquisite diamond necklace donated by Eskew’s Fine Jewelers.
The committee encourages all attendees to bring a dessert item to enter into the Dessert Challenge. Entries must have 36 individual servings. All attendees of the event will have an opportunity to purchase a trip through the dessert bar.
All proceeds from the Charity Ball and Auction will support House of Hope, Inc. Individual and group table tickets are still available to be purchased at several locations in Lafayette County, including The Halford Law Office, located at 215 W. Dryden St., Odessa.
