The Saline Courier - - FRONT PAGE - By Elisha Mor­ri­son el­[email protected]­ton­courier.com

Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity of Sa­line County is selling tick­ets for its new­est fundraiser, the Over­all Ball, which will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 26 at the Ben­ton Event Cen­ter.

“The Over­all Ball is a new spin on our fall fundraiser,” said De­vel­op­ment Di­rec­tor Amy Kelly, adding it is an over­all, hard hat and con­struc­tion-themed event.

The fo­cus for the event will be Habi­tat home­own­ers and their sto­ries.

To go along with the more

“down home coun­try” feel of the event, Kelly said Habi­tat is hav­ing Gina’s Cater­ing serve a “break­fast for din­ner” meal.

Kelly plans to in­cor­po­rate build­ing sup­plies into the event cen­ter­pieces.

Habi­tat hopes the Over­all Ball will be a more in­ter­ac­tive event for guests.

The pre­vi­ous event, Re­pur­pose for a Pur­pose, had a different fo­cus. Kelly and the board felt sup­port­ers might en­joy a change.

One way Habi­tat will tell its story is by show­ing a video made by ACDI. The pro­mo­tional video, which is be­ing filmed lead­ing up to the event, will show­case what brought home­own­ers, vol­un­teers and sup­port­ers to Habi­tat. The video will fea­ture home­own­ers and board mem­bers. Kelly said it will show how the money peo­ple do­nate to Habi­tat ben­e­fits the com­mu­nity.

Tom Bax­ley will serve as the em­cee for the evening.

Habi­tat plans to have a photo booth with props. The or­ga­niz­ers are still work­ing out all the de­tails of the event.

There will be a small silent auc­tion dur­ing the ball.

Kelly said peo­ple who plan to at­tend don’t need to stress if they don’t have over­alls.

“The Over­all Ball theme is meant to be more ca­sual,” she said.

Rid­out Lum­ber is the pre­sent­ing spon­sor for the Over­all Ball. Bax­ley-pen­field-moudy Real­tors is the first Raise the Roof spon­sor.

Kelly said Habi­tat is ac­cept­ing ad­di­tional Raise the Roof and Light the House spon­sors. Raise the Roof spon­sor­ship is avail­able for $1,000 and in­cludes five tick­ets to the ball, so­cial me­dia and the com­pany logo on all the ta­bles. The Light the House spon­sor gets two tick­ets, so­cial me­dia and the com­pany logo on the light dis­play.

Any­one in­ter­ested can con­tact Kelly at Habi­tat.

Tick­ets and ta­bles for the event are now avail­able. Ta­bles are $350 and seat 10. The event will have up to 25 ta­bles avail­able. In­di­vid­ual tick­ets are $40 each.
