2021 River City Ball Scheduled for April 24

April 9, 2021

Music, dancing, food and drinks, red carpet worthy dresses, and community fundraising.  

The 2021 River City Ball is scheduled for Saturday, April 24 from 6-11pm on the Historic Courthouse Square in Carthage, TN.  Postponed from last year due to COVID-19, the 3rd Annual River City Ball is a 21 and up, black tie fundraising affair, benefitting the Emmanuel House in Smith County. 

Proceeds from the River City Ball will help the Emmanuel House in their mission to address the growing population of homeless women and children in Smith County by providing temporary housing, spiritual, mentorship, transportation, life skills training, education, and access to recovery and social services. Our generous River City Sponsors, Rackley Roofing and Citizens Bank, make this possible.

The River City Ball also provides a scholarship to graduating Seniors at each Smith County High School and Gordonsville High School. Interested high school Seniors can pick up applications from their guidance office. Carthage Family Chiropractic has generously sponsored these scholarships both this year and last. 

The 1920’s themed evening will begin with a red carpet style entry and valet parking sponsored by Wilson County Motors. There will be multiple photo opportunities sponsored by Lish and Lish so attendees can capture their own Great Gatsby style moment. Guests will be served a delicious meal, enjoy live music with a dance floor, and can bid on items in an auction sponsored by The Kirby Team to raise additional funds for the Emmanuel House. The bar is sponsored by Serenity Networks and each ticket includes 2 complimentary alcoholic drinks. Additional drink tickets can be purchased via Event Brite; https://www.eventbrite.com/e/river-city-ball-2020-benefiting-emmanuel-house-tickets-85128913873.
