Mansfield Cares will step back into 1960s glamour at this year’s charity ball, “007: Shaken Not Stirred, Shaking Mansfield Up Since 1999.”
“We are going to dance, eat and enjoy each other’s company,” said ball chairperson Kristie Cawthon. “We’ll have lots of auction items, a live auction, silent auction and tons of food.”
The 24th annual Mansfield Cares Charity Ball is set for 7 p.m.-midnight February 24 at Walnut Creek Country Club, 1151 Country Club Drive. Tickets are $150 each and available at mansfieldcares.org.
“We are going to celebrate Mansfield and the accomplishments we have been able to do in our community through the generous donations of our supporters,” Cawthon said. “We will be celebrating them through video presentations and advertisements.”
Live music will be by the Good Question Band, a cover band that plays dance music and oldies.
Auction items include trips and jewelry, she said.
The funds raised go back into the Mansfield community to support Feed the Kids, shoes for students to go back to school and food cards for the Angel Tree, Cawthon said.
Suzy Herrmann, a member and former president of the Mansfield Cares board of directors, serves as the nonprofit’s benevolence chairperson.
“Ninety-six percent of all profit goes straight back into the Mansfield community,” Herrmann said. “Times are hard and people are in need. Mansfield Cares is there to be the safety net for food insecurity and other needs Mansfield families may have.”
