The Friends Association in West Chester invites you to get tickets now for its 34th Annual West Chester Charity Ball, presented by A. Marinelli & Sons. 

The Black Tie Optional Ball, celebrating the Friends Association’s 200th anniversary, will take place Saturday, Dec. 3, 6 to 10 PM at the West Chester Golf & Country Club, 111 W. Ashbridge Street in West Chester.  

The in-person event includes a sit-down dinner, open bar, live music, dancing, silent and live auctions and generous holiday cheer! 

Tickets are $200 and include reserved seating. 

Sponsorships for this year’s Charity Ball are also available.  

The Charity Ball will support the ongoing 200-year mission of the Friends Association to provide safe and stable housing to families in the community.  

For 34 years the West Chester Charity Ball has supported the local community through the generosity of its sponsors, committee members, and attendees.  

The work of the Friends Association has more than doubled in this past year because of the pandemic and continuing financial crisis.  

Your support makes all the difference. All proceeds of the Dec. 3 event benefit Friends Association in its work to end homelessness in Chester County for families with children. 

Silent Auction  

The Silent Auction is open to anyone online, not just guests of the Charity Ball.  It will open a few days before the Charity ball and conclude at 9:30 p.m., Dec. 3. 

For those unable to attend the Ball, this is a great way to support the event and the work of the Friends Association.  

More details about the auction and available auction items will be announced at a later date.   


Join local businesses, individuals, and community leaders as sponsors of this event. In addition to live music, dancing, auctions, and holiday cheer, all sponsorships and tickets will include Reserved Seating.
