Mask-or-Aid Ball
Click to see the full image
The inaugural Mask-or-Aid Ball, hosted by Carolyn Brown of the Cavaliers Better Halves, drew about 200 to the Renaissance Hotel Cleveland on May 2 in support of the Domestic Violence Center.

The New Orleans-themed evening began with a cocktail hour featuring Mardi Gras masks, live ragtime music by the Dixie Dandies and the St. Ignatius Circus Club, a strolling magic and juggling act. Dinner was a Cajun affair with mashed sweet potatoes, gumbo and fried catfish.

A live auction was the highlight of the evening, offering guests the chance to fly with the Cavaliers team to an away game. Coach Mike Brown egged on bidders with bonuses, including autographed LeBron James sneakers and a massage from the team’s masseuse.

The Mask-or-Aid Ball raised more than $25,000 for the Domestic Violence Center, which seeks to empower individuals, promote justice and mobilize the community so that all people are free from violence and abuse in their relationships and homes.
