Community Resource Services is the leader in serving those in need in the communities of Avon and Avon Lake.
CRS held its 26th annual Charity Ball on Sat., Jan. 31, at LaCentre in Westlake as a record number of 410 guests attended.
Sponsored by NRG Energy and Medical Mutual, the “You Are the Key to Our Heart” Charity Ball was a night to celebrate the difference that CRS has made in the lives of so many individuals and families over the years, as well as pay tribute to the many volunteers, organizations and businesses that have been the KEY to CRS success.
The Charity Ball is CRS’s biggest fundraiser. A wonderful feature of the Charity Ball is the Jewelry Raffle. Peter & Company Jewelers donated the Hearts On Fire Captivation necklace and matching earrings valued at $8,040.
Last year’s event raised $75,000, with almost 350 people in attendance. It is hoped that the 410 people who attended this year’s ball will make it another record-breaker!
Update: Numbers for this year’s ball are nearly finalized, indicating $85,000 was raised.
