Island Park Black & White Ball and Auction

Our largest fundraising event benefiting our Learning Support fund is a party not to be missed! This year’s theme is attributed to the Black & White Ball Truman Capote hosted in 1966. Although we are calling this a “ball”, there is no need to dress up. Wear a black gown or jeans, just join us for the great night. The night will include heavy appetizers, drinks, a DJ, and both a small live auction and silent auction. Buy your tickets today!
