LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Hanna Community Center hosted its 37th annual Ebony and Ivory Ball on Saturday.

Dozens of Greater Lafayette leaders gathered to help fundraise for the center's services. Hanna Community Center works to provide after-school programs, senior services, and a wellness center at a low cost. This has benefited hundreds of families in Tippecanoe County.

Every dollar from the charity ball tickets will go directly to the center's programs. Event Coordinator Jaqueline Varela said this is the center's biggest fundraiser.

“We cater to the working families, the low-income families that can barely afford childcare so we keep our prices low for them so in order for us to do that we have to also maintain our community center and through these funds, we can actually do that,” said Varela.

In addition to fundraising through ticket sales, guests also participated in a silent auction. The Hanna Community Center is located at the Northend Community Center at 2000 Elmwood Ave, Lafayette, IN 47904.
