Charity Ball

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 65 years!

From its humbling beginning in 1950 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.

Charity Ball is a black tie optional event; featuring a beautifully decorated venue, giving attendees a unique experience they will only find at our event! The evening begins with a social hour and the chance to browse a silent auction showcasing hundreds of items including artwork, fashion and jewelry, home decor, children’s items, local services and more.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in various raffles, including Wild Card – an exclusive raffle card that gives the lucky winner their pick of any live auction item. The evening progresses to a formal three course dinner and program, which will include sponsor recognition and the live auction. As the program ends, the fun is just beginning with live music and dancing the night away.

Why We Host Charity Ball
