2019 Governor’s Charity Ball to support local non-profits

The 16th annual Governor’s Charity Ball returns with its continued mission to support vital organizations in New Mexico.  The 2019 beneficiaries are the Children’s Grief Center and The Coalition to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse.

Charity Ball chair Tony Pino stopped by Living Local, along with Jenny Vincent of the Children’s Grief Center and Alisha Hawthorne Martinez with the Coalition to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse. They spoke about the vital needs of each organization in helping New Mexico children cope with traumatic situations.

The annual event will raise funds through live and silent auctions, ticket purchase and other monetary donations. The “roaring ’20’s” event will also feature a live orchestra led by the vocal talents of Kady Bow.

The Governor’s Charity Ball takes place April 27 at Isleta Resort and Casino.
