West Chester Charity Ball

We send our deepest gratitude to every donor, sponsor, and attendee who made the 31st Annual West Chester Charity Ball a resounding success. It was a beautiful evening, filled with a spirit of generosity that will make a difference to Chester County families well beyond the evening as we continue the work of preventing family homelessness in our community.

We hope that you had a wonderful time at the ball and that the warm feeling of being a part of our Friends Community stays with you throughout the year. We certainly hold you in our hearts every day.

Save The Date

On Saturday, December 7, 2019, from 6:30 in the evening until 11:00 pm, Friends Association for Care and Protection of Children invites guests to its 3nd Annual West Chester Charity Ball at the West Chester Golf and Country Club.

Last year, Friends Association helped 210 children and 92 families overcome homelessness. A feat that might not have been possible if not for the amount raised at the West Chester Charity Ball — the Association’s largest fundraiser. Replete with gourmet food, wine, music, and a lively auction, the event has evolved into one of the most awaited events in town. This year, it celebrates 32 years since its inception.
