RIVER CITY BALL SATURDAY

RIVER CITY BALL SATURDAY

The second annual River City Ball is this weekend. The fundraiser will be held on Main Street in front of the courthouse beginning at 6 p.m., Saturday, May 11. The black tie event is for ages 21 and up. A new twist has been added to this year’s event, attendees are encouraged to wear a masquerade ball type mask. Citizens Bank is this year’s premier sponsor.

The first annual River City Ball was held in May of last year. Proceeds from the event benefit a special cause and local scholarships to seniors at each of the county’s high schools. Last year, a portion of the proceeds benefited the Carthage Junction Depot restoration project. This year, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Smith County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children). A silent auction will also be held during the event to raise funds.
