The Angel Ball: Unmasking Loss 2023
Join us for a night of elegance and remembrance at the Slover Library as we raise funds and awareness for pregnancy and infant loss. The evening will feature a masquerade theme, with guests invited to don their finest formal attire and masks as they mingle and enjoy a guest speaker, raffle, dinner, and dancing.
Guests will enjoy the raffles and competitive live auction—all for a good cause!
But the highlight of the evening will surely be the fashion show, where guests will have the opportunity to honor their angel babies by showcasing one-of-a-kind angel wings they have created. The show will be a poignant tribute to the loved ones we have lost and a celebration of the strength and resilience of those who have been affected by pregnancy and infant loss.
