This year, because of COVID-19, like most everything else, is going virtual.  But that doesn't mean that there won't be much of the same experience that there is with an in-person Holly Ball. At least, as much as possible.

This year's virtual event is scheduled for December 5th.  The theme this year is Hope and Healing Through Music.

Life is like a piano. White keys are happy moments and black keys are sad moments. But remember both keys are played together to create music.

There will be a silent auction this year, and the items are already up and ready for viewing.   The early bidding will begin on December 2nd.   The streaming event is free this year, but there are items that are available for purchase in order to enhance your virtual Holly Ball experience.  These things  include some  gifts, apparel, sparkle bags, a special Holly Ball brew from Pantown Brewing Company, meals and of course some photo fun opportunities, and more!

The  streaming event will begin on the 5th of December at 7:00 for pre-party activities.
