When the Junior Board of CHNK selected a circus theme for this year’s Charity Ball, no one had any idea just how much the year 2020 would actually resemble a three-ring circus! And while the Junior Board and staff of CHNK would like nothing more than to gather “Under the Big Top” with our esteemed sponsors and guests, as a healthcare organization we simply are not willing to risk the health and safety of any single attendee, volunteer, vendor, or employee.
We might not be able to have a night together under the big top like we originally planned, but the 2020 Charity Ball is still on! The best part? Well, it’s a toss-up between getting to participate from the comfort of your sofa, not needing to purchase a ticket in order to participate, and the fact that this year’s festivities will take place over an entire week, all leading up to the main event on Saturday, November 21.
Actually, the BEST part of this year’s event is that your participation – as a sponsor, as an auction bidder, as a general donor – will help CHNK successfully navigate the financial challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and come out stronger than ever. All net proceeds from this year’s Charity Ball will directly support the significant, unplanned expenses incurred by CHNK in order to keep our young clients safe and healthy and to ensure our treatment services are accessible from just about anywhere – including a phone or computer.
Your financial investment will still have significant impact on the nearly 3,000 individuals who come to CHNK for help this year. The only difference? Rather than gathering 450 people together at Music Hall, we’re encouraging smaller watch parties from the comfort of your home or office. Food and beverage options are available for individual purchase or as part of sponsorship, with delivery directly to your watch party site. Maybe you’ll run with the circus theme and encourage your friends to come to your watch party dressed as characters from The Greatest Showman. Maybe you’ll decide to still go for the glamour of Charity Ball night and don a ballgown and tux. The options are limitless with our virtual event – just make sure to document your participation on social media using #CHNKCharityBall so that we can be part of your fun!
