Twenty-two high school seniors comprise the Junior Auxiliary of Columbus Charity Ball Court to be presented during the annual event at Trotter Convention Center March 28. Following the introduction of the court at the 70th annual ball, the Charity Ball king and queen will be presented. The evening will also include a performance by West Lowndes High School Marching Band, plus live entertainment by The Party Jammers, a 10-piece show band from Memphis, Tennessee. The traditional royalty breakfast will also follow.
Balcony and royalty breakfast tickets will be sold at the Trotter Convention Center ticket office from 6-8 p.m. on March 25-27, and from 7-7:45 p.m. on March 28. Balcony tickets are $25; breakfast tickets are $25. Tickets will be required for admission to the Charity Ball.
"Up and Away with JA" is the theme of this year's ball, which, along with the annual Report to the Community, is the chapter's only fundraiser. Proceeds support year-round projects and programs serving children in Lowndes County.
"It a night of celebration -- celebrating hope, opportunity and progress," said JA of Columbus President Bethany Bustamente.
