As an annual event, charity ball takes place so that awareness and funds can be raised for a special cause. This year it was decided to raise money for either a student proposed memorial or a donation to Madison Forever. The ball will happen this Saturday February 11, 2012 in Festival from 7-10pm and will include hors d’oeuvres, guest speakers, and a DJ dance party!
Tickets will be sold beginning at 6:30p with doors opening at 6:45. They are $10 at the door (you can pay with either cash or check made out to JMU) for faculty, staff and students. Tables can be reserved ahead of time through JMUcharityball@gmail.com but payment will still be taken the day of the event. Also for sale that evening will be the JMUnited t-shirts for an additional $10.
There will also be idea boxes out with papers and pens so that any attendee can give their thoughts and ideas about what to do to honor our fallen friends. The attire will be semi-formal and bows ties are encouraged.
