Just in time for Halloween, adults can enjoy some masquerade fun, while raising much needed funds for Heroes for Children. On Saturday, October 27 at the historic Belo Mansion (2101 Ross Ave., Dallas, TX 75201), a brand new event called Heroes in Disguise Masquerade Ball features casino games, fast-paced auctions, a scrumptious dinner and dancing to the Manhattan Party Band until the clock strikes midnight. Cocktail attire and masks are encouraged.
The VIP reception starts at 6 p.m. with an exclusive Louis XIII cognac tasting, entertainment surprises and early bidding opportunities. At 7 p.m., the general reception opens with cocktails, casino and silent auction bidding. At 8 p.m., dinner is served, and the program includes an awards presentation to “heroes in disguises,” followed by a live auction and dancing. The event concludes at midnight.
Event co-chairs are Morgan Hallman and Mandy Lu Ristow, and honorary co-chairs are Alison and Michael Weinstein. Tickets are $250 each, and sponsorships are available.

According to Julie Siegel, Heroes for Children newly hired executive director, “Families battling cancer need a HERO, especially as they’re dealing with a child who has cancer. We invite you to be a hero and join us at this elegant event.”
Heroes for Children advocates for and provides financial and social assistance to families with children battling cancer. Founded by two moms, Larissa Linton and Jenny Scott Dowen, whose daughters passed away from Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Heroes for the Children has provided $5.5 million to nearly 6,000 families in need since 2004.
