Tickets Available at Village Hall, Through 20 Sponsoring Organizations

Reservations are now available for the 2006 Mayor’s Community Charity Ball, to be held Saturday, Nov. 11 at Alta Villa Banquets, 430 N. Addison Road. This black-tie optional event is hosted by Mayor Larry Hartwig.

Dinner tickets will be $60 per person; approximately half of this will be donated to the sponsoring organization of your choice.

Tickets sold on behalf of the Village of Addison will be donated to two causes of the mayor’s choice – this year, these funds will go to support the Community Switchboard, and to Village of Addison Sister Cities and their scholarship program to send students to Triggiano, Italy.

Last year, more than $67,000 was donated, the most ever raised. It is hoped that this year’s event will be even more successful.

Three new organization have joined as sponsors of the Ball: Lutherbrook Child and Adolescent Center, Americans of Italian Descent and District 4 Foundation for Educational Excellence. The remaining sponsors are: Addison Community Switchboard, Addison Center for the arts, Addison Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Addison Knights of Columbus, Addison Trail Music Boosters, Addison Trail Theatre Boosters, American Association of University Women – Addison Branch, Concord Lutheran School, Helping Hands Sertoma Club, Kiwanis Club of Addison, Medinah Shriners, Northeast DuPage Special Recreation Association (NEDSRA), Parks & Recreation Foundation, Rotary Club of Addison, Sister Cities of Addison, Student Participation Center and Women’s Club of Addison.

Tickets may also be purchased for the Cash Raffle, awarding $1,500, $1,000 and $500 – winners need not be present.

The 16th Annual Mayor’s Community Charity Ball will begin with cocktails at 6 p.m., and dinner at 7 p.m. The Addison Trail Chamber Strings will provide dinner music. After dinner, guests are invited to dance to the Limited Edition Big Band.

During the course of the evening, guests may also begin a bit of early Christmas shopping, as more than 200 items will be available in the Silent Auction. As this portion of the event has become more popular over the years, participants this year will have the opportunity to pre-register their credit card at the beginning of the evening to allow them to skip the payment line once the auction closes.

To purchase dinner or raffle tickets, or to get more information, please contact Doree Krage, Assistant Community Relations Director, at 693-7550 or email
