Community Cares for Kids (CCK) will hold its seventh annual fundraiser, a Carnivale party, at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 19 at the Westmoreland Club in Wilkes Barre.
The event funds CCK's yearly medical mission to the children of Ecuador who suffer from disfiguring injuries or birth defects. CCK is an all-volunteer organization that also donates to area charities and communities in crisis.
This year's event features a five-hour open bar, hor d'ouevres, dinner and dessert, along with dancing and live music by The Uptown Band.
The event includes a silent auction with items ranging from fine art from David Green and Marquis Art and Frame, antiques, jewelry from Valentine's, a scooter from Pride Mobility and a fur piece from RK Furs to spa packages from Age of Innocence and more.
Guests will also enjoy a 50/50 raffle, a palm reader, caricaturist and photographer. Attire is Blue, Black or Beads which means attendees can dress up in tux and mask or down in blue jeans and beads.
