3rd Annual Blue Jean Ball
Friday, April 12, 2019

Mark your calendars; it's that time of year again! The CAC is happy to announce its 3rd annual Blue Jean Ball coming to Pittsburg on April 12, 2019, featuring: dinner, music, silent and live auctions, and raffles! Join us, and help reduce the traumatic effects of abuse on kids in Crawford and Cherokee Counties!

We're not fancy, and we don't expect you to be, either! Put on your best blue jeans and come on out to the Carbon Creek Events & Venue for beverages and BBQ! While you're at it, bid on some great items and support the Children's Advocacy Center (who says you have to dress up to have fun and do good things?). C'mon out and bring friends!

Doors open at 6; dinner served at 7!

Purchase tickets online by Monday, April 1st. Click on the "Blue Jean Ball" image to the left to access our ticket website!
