Charity Ball Tickets & Details

We invite you to encourage your children to attend the 119th Maria Love Charity Ball; the longest running Charity Ball in the United States!  This is a great opportunity to explain to our young people how attending can help those less fortunate in our own community, while having a fun night out with friends! The Maria Love Fund is a bridge to independence providing interim financial support to the people of Erie County with convalescent recovery needs. 

Your Angel and Giving ticket includes admission to the dance, ice cream sundae bar, photo booth, selfie station, entertainment by DJ Yes and DJ Milk, and your donation to the Maria Love Convalescent Fund!! General Admission tickets also available. Learn more about the Fund here.  

This year we are pleased to host both a Middle School and a High School dance at RiverWorks Buffalo!  Semi-formal attire for both dances.  Girls are encouraged to wear a dress or dressy pants and blouse. Boys are encouraged to wear a sports coat. Here are the details:
