A Night of Celebration

With so much media focus on what’s wrong in the world, it’s nice to have an evening to celebrate the good things happening in our community. Our Making a Difference Ball is going to be bigger and better than ever with silent & live auctions, plentiful food and drink, and live entertainment.

We'll accept reservations until February 28, 2013.  Last year we sold out, so please reserve your seat(s) today!  We ask for a donation of $150 per person or, be a "Leader of the Pack" and host table of 10 for $1350.

Please contact us at dawsball@daws.org for more information and to make your reservation for the event if you prefer not to use our online system.

Can't make it on March 9th?  

Please consider supporting our MAD Ball benefit with a donation today.
