JACKSON – An almost sold-out Bishop’s Ball drew people from across the Jackson area to the Country Club of Jackson Saturday, June 6. The crowd bid on a number of silent auction items including fine art, jewelry, trips, home and patio accessories and more. During dinner, Catholic Charities honored Archie R. McDonnell Jr., of Citizens National Bank and Beth and Robert Gaston with the Good Samaritan Award for their dedication to the mission of Catholic Charities.
A lively live auction featured furniture, a trip to Italy with Bishop Joseph Kopacz and other items.
After dinner, the band These Days packed the dance floor. The Bishop’s Ball is the main fund-raising event for Catholic Charities’ Children’s Programs.
