If you’re looking to attend a masquerade ball on the weekend before Mardi Gras — and you want to wear comfortable footwear — there’s a benefit fundraiser you might want to check out.
The Jewel Guild Foundation, known for its commitment to supporting communities in Shelby County, Tennessee, is hosting its Inaugural Annual Masquerade Sneaker Ball. Set to take place at The Palace of Cordova Event Center on February 10, 2024, from 7 pm to 12 am, the Masquerade Sneaker Ball promises to be a memorable experience.
A portion of proceeds will go towards scholarships in honor of late Bernal E. Smith III, former Publisher of The Tri-State Defender, and Malcolm Wallace, a civic leader in the Mid-South. These scholarships are targeted at supporting male high school seniors from Memphis-Shelby County, Tipton County, and Fayette County Area.
