Annual charity ball celebrates Silver Anniversary

Catholic Charities hosted the 25th annual Black & White Ball Feb. 25 at the Jessie Ball duPont Center, a popular event venue and the location of Catholic Charities’ Jacksonville office.

Honorary chairs for the gala were Julie and Joe Helow. Event Chair was Paola Parra Harris and Mistress of Ceremonies was Charlene Shirk, a moderator on The Chat. Platinum sponsor was the Alfred I. duPont Foundation.

Over the past 25 years, the annual ball has raised almost $3 million for Catholic Charities’ Emergency Assistance Program, benefiting families in need. Over 20,000 individuals were served by the organization in 2016, receiving assistance with food, utilities, rent, housing support services and case management.
