Mansfield Cares is ready to party, and the organizers of the nonprofit’s annual charity ball figure that everyone else is, too.

After a year off due to the pandemic, the event is back with a Masquerade Ball from 7 p.m. to midnight Saturday, Feb. 26, at Walnut Creek Country Club, 1151 Country Club Drive.

“After two years of being cooped up, everyone is ready to get out and have a good time, most importantly, it’s for a GREAT cause!” said Heidi Gallini, chairperson for this year’s gala.

The 22nd annual ball will feature live music from The Good Question Band and a dance floor to fully enjoy the evening. Plus, there will be lots of food and live and silent auctions.

“Our amazing sponsors and donors have supplied us with amazing items for our live and silent auction, and the wine pull and split-the-pot will surely keep the excitement alive,” Gallini said.

“We will be treated with some amazing creations from the club’s new executive chef, Joseph Hale,” Gallini said. “We will have a carving station, seafood on ice, heavy hors d’oeuvres, a salad station, not to mention a beautiful dessert bar. There will be three cash bars available.”

Mansfield Cares was formed in 1998 to provide funds for local charities. Since then, the all-volunteer group’s role has expanded.

“Mansfield Cares is the No. 1 fund-raiser for charitable organizations and programs in Mansfield,” Gallini said. “We are honored to help with the Feed the Kids, a summer program providing daily breakfast and lunch to over 10,000 kids; providing necessary funds to local food pantries; supplying kids with back-to-school shoes; providing grocery cards to families in the Angel Tree Program; contributing to the MISD Scholarship Foundation and so much more.”

Tickets are $150 per person and available at
