The annual Ebony and Ivory Ball has helped fund a Lafayette organization for three decades. The 30th annual event benefiting the Hanna Community Center is this Saturday, January 26.
Executive Director Heather Maddox says they don’t give out any awards and there’s no keynote speaker, but the event does raise money to keep their services going.
“It’s just a fun night – dinner, dancing, a silent auction,” she says. “We give a little bit about what we do, but otherwise, it’s a night for everyone to get together, socialize and have a good time.”
