Century League raises $8,000 at ball

The GFWC Century League of Morrilton recently raised $8,000 at its 32nd annual Charity Ball at the Morrilton Country Club.

The Century League strives to spend its funds on local projects to improve the community, like purchasing animals for children through the Junior Livestock Auction, supplying meals for needy families at Thanksgiving, buying Christmas gifts for local children in need, sending students to Girls State, sustaining a scholarship endowment at the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton and other projects.  

This year’s ball had a New York City theme, and 125 guests attended the event. Mister Lucky played popular songs that kept the crowd on their feet throughout the night. A street-cart-style dinner was served buffet-style featuring many of the treats that New York City is known for.  Attendees had the opportunity to browse raffle and silent auction items donated by local businesses and organizations.

A special thanks goes out from the Century League to all sponsors and contributors who support this event every year, including:

  • Emerald Sponsors ($500): Green Bay Packaging, Hagans Dodge, Hawkins Insurance Agency, Healthcare Pharmacy, Ronnie Stell Trenching and UA Community College Morrilton.
  • Ruby Sponsors ($250): Koontz Electric, Morrilton Packing Company, Petit Jean State Bank, St. Vincent Morrilton, State Farm Insurance and Wayne Smith Trucking.
  • Amethyst Sponsors ($100): Allison Ford, D. Voss Inc, Johnson & Ruff CPAs, Magie Veterinary Clinic, Merle Norman & More and Mike and Susie Dunaway.
