What is Charity Ball
Charity Ball is the only fundraiser for Junior Auxiliary of Jonesboro and has been the premier event in Jonesboro for more than 50 years!
From its humble beginning in 1971 with a total of $217.36 raised, to the grand event it has come today, routinely raising well over $100,000, Charity Ball has become more and more successful each year thanks to the generous community that we live in.
Most years Charity Ball is a black tie optional event. However, given the current COVID-19 pandemic, we made the decision to host a virtual gala for 2021 to protect the health and safety of our members and guests. This event featured a silent auction filled with amazing items that were generously donated by local businesses and individuals. A special section of the silent auction featured vacations, jewelry, and other luxury items that are typically featured in our live auction. We are so thankful to everyone who supported our event this year!
Why We Host Charity Ball
This event is the only source of funding for our service projects in Craighead County – all of the money raised at our event stays local!
The more funds we raise, the more children and youth we can reach and bring help to – it’s as simple as that. Learn more about our service projects and how we are making a difference in our community.
How You Can Help and/or Participate
As we strive to carry out our mission, there are many ways that you can help! We appreciate your support and dedication to improving the lives of children in our community.
Attend Charity Ball
We prefer to spend the majority of our time working on service projects, however, our volunteers put in a lot of hard work to make this annual event successful and enjoyable for all who attend. This year, in 2021, our event will all be virtual. However, you can still be a part of Charity Ball by bidding on items in our silent auction which will be available in February and by making plans to tune in for our virtual gala on Saturday, February 27, 2021.
