HOLTVILLE — Teachers and supporters can dance the night away while promoting the community’s education Friday during the first Imperial County Teacher UniServ Masquerade Ball fundraiser.
Imperial County Teachers UniServ is an affiliate of the Calexico Teachers Association and has an annual spring fundraiser to help provide scholarships to area high school graduates.
Between 125 and 150 people are expected to attend the masquerade ball to be held at the Barbara Worth Resort & Country Club.
Imperial County Teachers UniServ is underwriting the event’s costs so all the monies generated by the event will go to the scholarships.
“As much as teachers are in the classrooms with students every day, it’s an opportunity to provide them with an extra added push and incentive to go to college,” a press statement writes. “Normally a student has to go into debt in today’s structure and society to afford a college education. This does defray, in a small way, some of that cost.”
The event also offers a way for teachers all over the Valley to join together to have fun and relax in the name of a good cause, organizers say.
Attire is formal, masks encouraged, and black-tie is optional. The masquerade ball will feature live music, dinner, drinks, a silent auction, and a photo booth to capture the night’s memories.
Tickets are $45 each or $100 per person for VIP, which includes a mask and swag bag. CTA members can purchase VIP tickets through 10 monthly deductions.
