Beginning in 2004, we hosted pink and fabulous fundraising events to raise awareness and support for local organizations. These efforts culminated in our annual Blush Ball – a Party with a Purpose – where we have raised over $70,000 for Metropolitan Center for Women and Children (METRO) http://mcwcgno.org/ since 2009.

The Blush Ball is a costume Ball with a silent auction, raffle, live music, and live performances.
