CSC’s Children’s Ball Supports Head Start, other early education

ALLENTOWN — Community Services for Children invites the community to “Journey to Oz” on Nov. 17, for the annual Children’s Ball to support early education.

This year’s Wizard of Oz-themed ball will be held 6 to 9 p.m. at Lehigh University’s Mountaintop Campus. Tickets are $135 per person or $250 per couple and include a reception, live jazz music, seated dinner and auction. Jon Stetson, America’s foremost mentalist, will provide this year’s special entertainment.

Proceeds from the annual Children’s Ball support CSC’s early education programs, including Head Start of the Lehigh Valley. CSC’s Head Start program is ranked among the top 10 in the nation, providing high-quality early education to children ages 0-5 living in extremely low-income households. Services involve the entire family to ensure children reach developmental and academic milestones and caregivers have the support they need for the family to thrive.

The ball is limited to 200 attendees, and tickets are available at or by contacting Stacy Perlaki at 610-437-6000, ext. 2113.

Community Services for Children is a regional leader in early childhood education, affecting the lives of 35,000 children each year. Programs cover 16 counties in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
