Ark to host Magical Fairy Tale Ball Saturday

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

You can help support Evansville's most vulnerable children while your kids live out their fairy tale dreams.

This Saturday, the Ark Crisis Child Care Center is throwing their second annual Magical Fairy Tale Ball, presented by Cold Stone Creamery and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.

The ball raises money for the center's services which support abused and neglected children. 

Moms, dads, kids and all families are invited to come dressed in their Sunday best and interact with fairy tale characters.

The list of fairy tale favorites coming to the ball includes: Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, Prince Charming, Tinkerbell, Captain Hook, Sophia the 1st, Rapunzel, Tiana, Pocahontas, Merida, Ariel Prince Eric and Anna & Elsa from Frozen.

The event also includes an elegant, "kid-friendly" dinner, dancing and crafts.

The ball is Saturday, April 5th from 5:30-7:30  p.m. at the Evansville Country Club.

Tickets are $25 for kids 12 and under and $50 for adults. You can buy tickets online at www.arkcrisis.org or call 812-423-9425.

If you can't make it to the ball, you can become a "Fairy Godparent."

A $25 donation will give an Ark child the chance to feel like a prince or princess by sending them to the Fairy Tale Ball.  The donation covers the child's ticket, clothing, hair, makeup and transportation.

The ball coincides with Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Awareness Month which starts April 1st.

Ark hopes to bring as much attention as possible to the issue because the problem is worse in our area.

Vanderburgh County's abuse and neglect rates are much higher than the state average and more than double the national average.
