Wexford, PA – The Woodlands’ 15th Annual Butterfly Ball will take place Saturday, October 29th, 2016 at Oakmont Country Club. The Ball is the organization’s signature event and largest annual fundraiser. Each year, The Butterfly Ball honors a prominent philanthropist, business or community leader identified for their achievement in the realm of improving the lives of people with special needs. The 2016 Butterfly Ball will honor a special group close to the organization…The Woodlands Auxiliary. The gala dinner and celebration will be held Saturday, October 29th at Oakmont Country Club.
The Woodlands Auxiliary is a highly dedicated group of volunteers who, since The Woodlands’ inception in 1998, has been greatly instrumental in the success of the organization. Each year, the Auxiliary dedicates countless hours of meeting, planning and fundraising to support The Woodlands’ mission to enrich the lives of children and adults with special needs and chronic illness. Their efforts have been substantial; they have raised over two million dollars to support The Woodlands’ many programs and services. Of that amount, $257,591 was raised specifically for The Woodlands WonderFund, which provides scholarship assistance to those in need.
The Butterfly Ball is black-tie-optional and will begin at 6 p.m. with a silent auction and cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, followed by a seated dinner, live auction, and dancing. Tickets may be purchased in advance online at www.mywoodlands.org or by phone at 724-935-6533. Sponsorship packages are also available.
