Outfitter gala returns to ballroom


PENDLETON — Outfitters Masquerade Ball, a fundraiser for the local charity benefitting families in the South Madison school district, is set for 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 26, at Embassy Suites in Noblesville.

The annual event, which is in its 15th year and was virtual last year because of COVID-19, returns to in-person in the Waters Ballroom, where the event took place in 2019 and 2020.

“Very excited for everyone to get back together,” said Niki Brown, executive director of Outfitters, which provides new and gently used clothes to school children.

This year’s event, which includes a cake auction, features a sit-down dinner (short rib plus salmon or seared chicken), silent and live auctions, and dancing with live music, provided by The Flying Toasters. The band

will include Bill Hayes, who had retired but is back as the drummer.

“Something new this year that we’re doing is, our VIP Experience is an exclusive euchre tournament,” which will take place from 9 to 11 p.m., Brown said.

Other features of the evening include a photo booth and professional photographer for formal pictures on the red carpet.

Tickets cost $65 each. Tables seating up to eight, or 10 by special request, cost $600.

To obtain a discounted rate at the hotel, people must register by Jan. 26.
