54th Annual Charity Ball:
An Evening in Old Havana

¡Hola Owensboro!

You’re Invited to the Junior League of Owensboro’s 54th Annual Charity Ball
All proceeds benefit the local community.

On Saturday, February 29, 2020, the Junior League of Owensboro invites you to travel back in time to a warmer place surrounded by lush tropicals: Join us for an Evening in Old Havana. It’s the Junior League’s 54th Annual Charity Ball, featuring seventeen local young men and women serving as Junior Hosts and Hostesses, ready to escort you into the bustling streets and the warm sunshine of 1950s-era Havana, Cuba.

Enjoy Cuban cuisine from The Bauerhaus, while sipping mojitos and puffing cigars, with tunes from Diamond Empire Band that will keep you shaking your maracas all night long! As you dance the night away, take a leisurely stroll through our Silent Auction District to bid on an exquisite selection of items and experiences generously donated by local businesses. All proceeds from Charity Ball directly benefit the local community through the work of the women of the Junior League in pursuit of their mission to Empower OBKY.

“We are excited to celebrate this gorgeous piece of history in our theme this year!” said Charity Ball Chair, Jessica Woods. “In the exploration era, Old Havana was a major port linking the Old World and the New World. As we step into a new decade, we honor the traditions of our ancestors, grow with our community, and build connections across generations.”

Doors will open for this black-tie event at 6:00 p.m., with a plated dinner served at 7:00 p.m., and presentation of Junior Hosts and Hostesses will be at 8:00, p.m. In the festive spirit of Old Havana, the band will continue playing late into the night. So bring all your amigos and let’s raise some money for a great cause!
