I am so thankful I have job that also allows me to plan fabulous events for fantastic causes. This is the 5th year I have been able to organize the Benefit Ball through Bridal Traditions, and I love it more and more each year. Doing an event like this has always been one of my life long dreams, and now I am living the dream. :)
The benefit will be held on November 2nd at Tipton's Banquet Hall in Wilkesboro, NC. Advance tickets are on sale now until October 26th for $25 each and can be purchased at Bridal Traditions. If you purchase a table of 8 we will reserve a table for you and your group ensuring everyone sits together. As always 100% of you ticket purchase is donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Tickets are going to be extremely limited and are sold on a first come first serve basis. I am believing that we will have a complete sell out this year.
Each year we choose a different theme for the ball, and at this point we actually have a backlog of theme suggestions. After much demand and deliberation my planning committe and I decided to do a black and white theme so "Simple Elegance in Black and White" was born. I will have to admit at first I was not too terribly excited about the theme although I can't really explain why, BUT thanks to Pinterest I am thinking this may become my most favorite theme yet! With any event like this budget is always an issue and we have found some very creative and inexpensive decor ideas that will make huge impact.
I hope you can make it out to see what we have come up with this year, but if you can't and would still like to donate we will be happy to take that at Bridal Traditions, or you will be able to donate through the website as well very soon.
Please visit the website for more event and ticket info, and while you are there make sure you check out the sponsors page. If it were not for the sponsors helping to pay for the event we would not be able to donate 100% of your ticket purchase to St. Jude. Please make sure you support those local businesses!
