Sankofa: The Black Student Union will host the annual Charity Ball on Saturday, March 31 at the Ramada Inn Geneva Lakefront.
This is a black tie and evening gown event — students should dress to impress. After a 6 p.m. three-course meal, music will be provided for dancing the night away. At the silent auction, bidding will be accepted on several items.
April Park, a team manager at DialogueDirect in New York City, will be the evening's featured speaker. She raises funds on behalf of Plan USA, one of the organizations that will receive proceeds from this year's event. The other beneficiary will be Water for Sudan.
Tickets are $20 for students and children under 12 and $25 for non-students 12 and older, and are available at the College Store or through Sankofa board members. A shuttle will run from the Medbery parking lot to the Ramada from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. as well as afterward.
