Enhancing children's quality of life through generosity and advocacy

The Charity Ball Association makes a difference by providing direct financial support to those in need, by way of a rigorous grant selection process — comprised of financial, leadership and program review, site visits and evaluative follow-up after the money is distributed to assure compliance with all grant requirements.
