Moose to host masquerade ball

Woodward, Okla. — The Moose Lodge will be hosting its first ever Masquerade Ball on Saturday.

The ball is a charity event that benefits Mooseheart, a program which provides assistance to children of Moose Lodge members when they lose a parent, according to Kaye Kurtz, organizer of the event.

The Masquerade Ball will be a formal/semi formal event on Saturday starting at 7 p.m. and lasting until about 1:30 a.m. There will be a cash bar and a silent auction, Kurtz said.

Required dress for the event includes either formal attire such as tuxedos and long gowns or short or long dresses or suits for the men, Kurtz said.

The idea for a masquerade ball came to a group of Woodward women who wanted to do a charity event and also wanted to include a more formal theme, said event co-coordinator Tina Howard.

On Wednesday, Howard was preparing decorations for the event specific to how masquerades were done in the 15th century.

"I'm so excited I feel like it is a week before my daughter's wedding," Howard said. "I want it to be a success and have enough people and then I worry that we will have more people than we have room for."

The cost of the tickets is $15. Tickets can be purchased at the door.

For more information or to reserve tickets call 580-334-3475.
