Band and Colette alum plan fundraiser

 WESSON — The Copiah-Lincoln Community College Band and Colette Alumni Chapter is sponsoring “A Princess Ball” for fathers and daughters on Feb. 10 and 11 at the Thames Center.
The event is a fundraiser for the Stanley Stewart and Clyde Wilson scholarships for band and Colette students. Band and Colette Alumni Chapter president Mark Hamilton said the event is the first of its kind in the area, and not only will it be an opportunity for the organization to raise funds, but it is an opportunity for fathers and daughters to connect.
“The father/daughter connection is so important, and there is nothing like this available in our area to encourage that relationship,” Hamilton said.
The event is open to fathers, grandfathers and father figures and girls ages 5-15. The event times will be separated by age groups on both Friday and Saturday night with a ball for 5-9 year-olds from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and for 10-15 year-olds from 8-10 p.m. Tickets to the event are $30 per couple and will be available until Jan. 31 at the main branches of Copiah Bank, First Bank and Bank of Franklin in Copiah, Franklin, Lawrence and Lincoln counties. Cost of the ticket includes a buffet dinner, dancing, door prizes and ballroom dance instruction. Dress for the event is formal, and photography will be available for an additional fee.
