Holiday Ball

No need to break out the dancing shoes this year. Holiday Ball is going virtual! That’s right, you will be able to join us from the comfort of your own home for our first ever virtual Holiday Ball: The UN-GALA on December 5, 2020.

Starting at 8PM on Saturday, December 5th, tune into our Facebook page to watch as we present Micki Kidder as this year’s Mary Lou Schwartz Award recipient and celebrate the Senior Sons and Daughters. However, no “Gala” is complete without a meal. We’ve teamed up with Papa Vinos for ONE NIGHT ONLY (December 5th) to create the perfect “UN-GALA” dinner complete with an entree, salad, bread, wine, and dessert. It will be a celebration complete with dinner and entertainment!


By supporting Holiday Ball, you will help support educational programs like the Born Learning Trail we will be installing in the spring in South East Park. Additionally, your financial support will help us address the food insecurity in our area which has been exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic. Did you know that, in St. Joseph County alone, 16% of residents (including 30% of residents of South Bend) do not know where their next meal will come from? We are committed to being a part of our area’s solution to food insecurity. ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of your donation will go toward supporting this important work.

For The Night Of, December 5th
