Happy Feet Ball Provides Shoes to Local Underprivileged Youth


The Charities Guild of Northern Kentucky will host its annual Happy Feet Ball on November 4 at the Newport Syndicate.  Tickets are $60 and include appetizers and open bar from 8 p.m. - Midnight.  Cincinnati Circus will provide casino gaming throughout the event.

"We are so glad the casino games are returning this year with the help of our presenting sponsor Gruelle-Dempsey Orthodontics," says Sarah Cameron, Guild President-Elect and PR Chair for this year's event. "The games were a hit last year and the Ambassador's Room at the Syndicate creates the best atmosphere for a fun night out with friends while helping our community." 

The Happy Feet Ball is the Guild's primary fundraiser for its Shoe Fund that has provided shoes to underprivileged children for over 25 years.

The Guild partners with area schools, churches and social service agencies to identify students in need, then distributes a $30 voucher for a new pair of shoes at a national discount retail store.  This allows the student to shop for his or her own pair of shoes, a source of pride and a learning experience.

"The feedback we get from this program is overwhelming," says Marci Schroder, Co-Chair of the Shoe Fund. "We are told that when children arrive at school with shoes in good condition, they are better able to focus on learning and have more confidence. With so many students walking to school in our area, it is hard to imagine the pain of ill-fitting shoes or shoes that are falling apart."  

The Happy Feet Ball will include a silent auction and raffles throughout the evening.  Dress is cocktail attire and entertainment will be provided by McFadden Music DJ.


Tickets for the Happy Feet Ball can be purchased by visiting https://www.charitiesguildnky.com.  Sponsorships ranging from $1000 to $350 are available and support from the community appreciated.
