DESTREHAN - Pull out your calendar and mark Jan. 19 as the night you will go out, enjoy yourself and “have a ball” - literally!

The St. Charles United Methodist Church’s Mexico Mission Team is hosting its first annual Masquerade Ball on Saturday, Jan. 19 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. to raise money for upcomping trips to Reynosa and Tampico, Mexico.

The ball will be held in the Fellowship Hall of the church located at 1905 Ormond Blvd. Donations of $10 are being accepted for admission prior to the event or you can pay $12 at the door.

Recommended attire is dressy to formal and everyone is encouraged to wear a mask.

And to make sure your dancing shoes don’t miss a beat, the church will be hosting free dance lessons on Friday, Jan. 11 in the Sunday School Building and on Saturday, Jan. 12 in the Fellowship Hall. Both sessions begin at 7 p.m.

All proceeds will fund expenses for medical and construction teams scheduled to travel to Mexico on May 27 and May 31.

For more information on the dance or to join the mission, call the church at 985-764-8292.
