Mansfield Cares hosted its 23rd annual charity ball at the Walnut Creek Country Club on Feb. 25. Elegantly dressed attendees sipped French martinis as they strolled past the Eiffel Tower and down the streets of Paris into the simply, yet beautifully decorated ballroom reminiscent of the City of Light.
Music provided by former Mansfield ISD student Remy Scott greeted guests upon entry as they dined on crepes, croquettes and macrons prepared by chef Joseph Hale.
Guests had multiple opportunities to give at the event. The live and silent auctions had something for everyone. Donations from community members and businesses included artwork and memorabilia, family friendly experiences, trips to beautiful locations and even a puppy. Guests also participated in fund-raisers like the Wine Pull and Grab and Go gift cards.
The joint efforts of the community raised approximately $125,000. The money raised at this event will assist in the funding of programs like Feed the Kids, Angel Tree, the Back to School Bash and also assist and provide space for operations for eight food pantries/banks, including Harvesting in Mansfield.
To close out the night, The After Party band brought the house down with their versions of classic hits that the crowd loved.
Mansfield Cares would like to express its extreme gratitude for the outpouring of support from the citizens of Mansfield and the surrounding community. This event is a success every year because the citizens of Mansfield have such giving hearts.
