Friends Together and Hope Shores Alliance host benefit masquerade ball

Two community organizations gathered over the weekend and partied for a good cause.

Friends Together and Hope Shores Alliance hosted their masquerade ball to benefit cancer patients and domestic violence victims.

Event organizer, Stacy Roznowski says funds raised from this second annual event will have an immediate and lasting impact on the community.

“We’re always looking to raise some money for our organizations. So for Friends Together, it’s a really big deal. The money that we raised here will help with gas cards for people to get to treatment, rides to treatment, some hotel stays…things like that. Hope Shores always needs money for their safe houses, things like that.”

The night consisted of a silent auction, good food and lots of photos. Over 200 attendees showed up to the event.
