Tickets for the Via Christi Emerald Ball are now on sale.
The ball will be March 22 at the Drury Plaza Hotel Broadview, 400 W. Douglas. Cocktails start at 6 p.m.; a live and silent auction is at 7 p.m.. Dancing goes until midnight.
The Emerald Ball is the major source of funding for Gerard House. The home provides shelter and counseling for young women during their pregnancies and for a few months afterward while they decide whether to keep and raise their children or place them for adoption.
Proceeds from the ball also go toward the Via Christi Cancer Institute, a cancer treatment and research facility.
Tickets are $125 per person; $1,200 for a table of 10. They can be purchased online at www.via-christi.org/emeraldball, or by calling the Via Chrsti Foundation at 316-239-3520.
