6th Annual 2010 JFP Chick Ball is July 24

The Jackson Free Press created the JFP Chick Ball in 2004 for two reasons: to raise education about and money to fight domestic abuse in Mississippi; and to showcase women musicians and artists to a diverse audience. The JFP Chick Ball is designed to be affordable so that anyone 18 or older can contribute to this very vital fundraiser. The cover charge is only $5, but we offer many fun ways to raise more money once guests are inside the event (from a game alley to a huge silent auction).

Everyone age 18+ welcome. Call event coordinator ShaWanda Jacome at 601.362.6121 ext. 16, or e-mail [e-mail missing], to donate or get involved.

Proceeds of the 2010 JFP Chick Ball will go to the Center for Violence Prevention in Pearl. In the past, the JFP Chick Ball has raised seed money for a batterer's intervention program to help stop domestic abuse and bought the shelter a new minivan. This year, we are raising money for a legal fund to help families get to safety and stay there. Please help us.
