It's time again for the annual Black & Red Ball, which benefits the center's Meals On Wheels Program in Bandera County, as well as the Silver Sage Community Center, 803 Buck Creek Boulevard.
The ball will be held Saturday, Feb. 15, at The Farm Country Club, FM 2828. Doors open at 6 pm, and live music by the Darrell McCall Band will begin at 8 pm.
Dress for the ball is "Bandera Formal," which means pretty much anything goes. There will be people in formal attire to those in jeans and a white shirt. Silent and live auctions are on the agenda. Tickets for the Black & Red Ball are $45 per person and $320 for a table of eight.
The mission of the Silver Sage Community Center is to provide or coordinate services, programs, activities to improve the quality of life for citizens of Bandera County. The Black & Red Ball provides everyone with a chance to make this mission a reality.
The Silver Sage provides meals for those over 60 years, who are unable to provide nutritious meals for themselves. Without this program, many seniors would not be able to remain in their own homes.
The volunteers who deliver the meals may be the only person that the recipient sees that day. The service gives them something to look forward to - hearing a kind voice and having the assurance that if something were to happen, someone would know. This is very important to so many residents in Bandera County.
In 2013, Silver Sage provided over 24,950 meals throughout Bandera County. Ticket donations for the upcoming ball ensures that this program and others offered by the Silver Sage will continue and grow.
Tickets for the Black & RedBall may be purchased at the Silver Sage office or by calling 830-796-4969. For more information, visit www.silversagecorral.org.
