Woodys Charities, founded by Tony Condon, is sponsoring the event to help raise funds to assist people with degenerative diseases purchase items such as wheelchairs, ramps, and other items to help make their lives easier.

Those attending the dinner and dance will also have the chance to ‘vote’ for one of four couples to be the belle and king of the ball. The couples include Darin and Kris Moeller, Dean and Denise Christensen, Jesse and Brenda Jones, and Dale and Chris Snyder. Jars with names and photos of each king and queen candidate will be set out and the public can vote by contributing. The couple who raises the most during the evening wins.

Tickets are available at Blum & Leonard Agency, Inc., Elks Lodge, Employees Credit Union, Estherville Drug, Northstar Bank & Agency, and Woody’s Pizza, Inc.
