The Children’s Charity Ball is still more than four months away, but the planning committee is already hard at work on the details for the Jan. 26, 2019 gala, which will return to Marquee Events in downtown Hartford – a space which many local residents may remember as the former G. Fox Building.

The Ball – and the Bridge – will celebrate two milestones in 2019, and the colors chosen for the event, as well as the theme are significant.

The gala’s colors will be emerald and gold – emerald for the 20th anniversary of the Ball, and gold for the extra special golden 50th anniversary of The Bridge Family Center, said Amanda Aronson, who serves as organizer of the gala. The event’s theme will be “growth.”

WFSB Channel 3’s Scot Haney will return as emcee, and honorary chairs for this year’s Children’s Charity Ball are Rob and Dawn Koff and Bob and Debbie Katz. Complimentary valet parking for guests will be provided by LAZ.

The Children’s Charity Ball is the Bridge’s major fundraiser, and typically nets about $250,000 in support of the nonprofit’s programs.
