18TH ANNUAL MAYOR’S COMMUNITY CHARITY BALL NOVEMBER 15

Reservations Available at Village Hall, Through 22 Sponsoring Organizations

Reservations are now available for the 2008 Mayor’s Community Charity Ball, to be held Saturday, Nov. 15 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 Helping Hand Sertoma Club.

Last year, more than $66,000 was donated, all of it to local charities and service organizations. It is hoped that this year’s event will be even more successful.

Two new organizations have joined as sponsors of the Ball: Serenity House and Addison Rec Club. The remaining sponsors are: Addison Community Switchboard, Addison Center for the arts, Addison Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Addison Trail Music Boosters, Addison Trail Theatre Boosters, Americans of Italian Descent, Concord Lutheran School, District 4 Educational Foundation, Friends of the Addison Public Library, Helping Hands Sertoma Club, Kiwanis Club of Addison, Knights of Columbus, 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 18th 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 Elmhurst College Jazz Band.

During the course of the evening, guests may also begin a bit of early Christmas shopping, as nearly 300 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 dkrage@addison-il.org.
